We had the good fortune of connecting with Rose Mailutha and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Rose, as a parent, what have you done for you children that you feel has had the most significant impact?
The most important thing I’ve done as a parent in terms of the impact on my child is really being present and practicing mindful parenting. My daughter is 10 years old, she is vibrant, smart, strong, creative, confident and has a passion for exploring different avenues of learning, self motivating and inspiring others. She was born this way, my only job was to nurture the old soul in her that knew exactly what made it joyful. I have grown so much as a human and as a mom because of her and my openness to growth and learning as situations presented themselves. I have had to keep checking my ego, you know that part of grown ups that thinks it knows everything, that children don’t know. I continuously strive to allow my daughter the space to emotionally and creatively express herself. I make time to engage and have meaningful conversations with her, I pray that I always find the teachable moments and execute with grace. Always being mindful to own my part, to acknowledge her feelings and to hear her, not listen but really hear her.
