Introducing the Authentic Self Series

Years ago, during my time teaching eighth grade, I frequently received compliments about my teaching abilities. However, despite the praise, I often grappled with feelings of being an imposter. When I became a parent, I felt the same imposter syndrome rise to my consciousness. Have you ever felt like an imposter? I’m beginning to understand why I felt this way, but we’ll get to that later. 

 

When my two kids were little, I often felt overwhelmed and out of energy. I kept thinking that other parents must know something I didn’t. So, when Patricia, the most-together mom in the neighborhood suggested we neighborhood moms leave the kids with the dads on Sunday nights for six weeks to take a Love and Logic parenting class together just for the fun of it and treat ourselves to coffee and pie afterward, I was all in!

From the first session, Love and Logic made way more sense to me than another parenting class I had taken with a friend. That course was taught by a person who seemed to never make any mistakes or get frustrated with his kids. Unlike that course, Love and Logic was filled with empathy and taught us that mistakes were opportunities for growth and connection. I no longer felt so alone. One thing I immediately resonated with was the “whose problem is it anyway” concept, while my friend Cindy resonated with saying “I love you too much to argue”.   I realized I had been draining myself trying to do everything right, and she realized she had been getting baited into way too many arguments with her girls.  Brilliant! Love and Logic parenting was all about energy management! Again, I was all in. 

Although our Love and Logic parenting course was facilitated by a foster parent/nurse who used Love and Logic extremely well, her teaching/facilitating skills were lacking. When she announced that there was a facilitator training coming up, my friends suggested that I put my teaching skills into action and become a facilitator.  I liked this idea.  Maybe becoming a facilitator would help me become a better parent and stop feeling like such an imposter.  I attended facilitator training in 1999 and have facilitated various types of Love and Logic courses for many teachers, caregivers, grandparents, and parents teaching and caring for all ages of children.

Meet Collaborator: Suzi Rowe: Suzi is a parent, teacher, facilitator of Love and Logic, and speaker inspired to share in developing each of our innate authentic, creative selves. Suzi has a Bachelor of Arts in English from Colorado College, a teaching credential from College of Notre Dame (now Notre Dame de Namur University), and is certified to facilitate Love and Logic teaching and of parenting classes. Suzi began her teaching career as an 8th-grade history and English teacher. She began giving key note speeches to preschool caregivers, helping improve and direct a preschool in Hawaii, teaching reading to 2nd and 3rd graders, assisting coach middle school volleyball, and passionately building connections with everyone and everything around her. Suzi, in collaboration with Dr. Brooke Heather, is excited to present and facilitate a soon-to-be-announced multi-part Authentic Self Parenting, Grandparenting, and Family Caregiving series highlighting her experience with Love and Logic parenting programs, an exploration of the Five Love Languages, and her newfound interest in celebrating our authentic children seen through the lens of Quantum Human Design. An encore session will be facilitated by Dr. Brooke Heather who will outline her vision for empowering each of us and our families to nurture our most authentic, healthy selves.

Now I’ll tell you more about my imposter syndrome. I didn’t really understand why I felt that way until I went through some very hard times. These struggles led me to discover that I needed to nurture my authentic self. Love and Logic’s number one rule is to take good care of yourself, but I didn’t really understand what that meant until recently.  You see, my authentic self was waiting all these years for me to finally take notice. Now I realize that the more I nurture my authentic self, the more I am able to nurture the authentic selves of others, and the less I feel like an imposter in my own life.
