Core Values List
When we make decisions based on our emotions, what our kids want, what other people think, or even what the experts say, these decisions are circumstantial, and they often leave us questioning if we did the right thing. Were we too firm where we should have given a little leniency? Were we trying to please our children instead of preparing them? But, when we use our values as the foundation of our parenting decisions, it’s much easier to find the answer we are looking for while staying true to what we know is important.
People get their values from many different places. Some come from our families of origin, some from society, and others from religion. They are part of our unconscious, the programming that’s always running in the background that we never seem to notice. The building blocks of who we are and every decision we make.
Use this Core Value List* to help you choose your Big 3 and begin using them to guide you in making decisions aligned with what you know is best for your family.
