“Parental intuition is the ability to ‘know’ something without consciously thinking about it.

When it pays off, which is most often the case, parental intuition can prevent your child from being exposed to danger. Here’s how to trust it and interpret it better. If you are a father or mother, you have likely relied on your parental intuition.

  

Parental intuition is an innate or instinctive ability that parents develop over time. It allows them to understand their children’s needs, make informed decisions, and detect potential dangers or concerns.

It is a form of intuitive understanding that guides parents in their educational choices and creating a safe and healthier environment for their children. This intuition is often based on a deep emotional connection between parents and their children, as well as on experience and biological ties. It plays an essential role in parental decision-making and contributes to the family’s overall well-being.

One night, a mother stayed up late to watch a movie with her children. At the film’s end, her son fell asleep on the couch. Not wanting to disturb him because he wasn’t feeling well, she took her daughter upstairs, put her to bed, and went to bed herself. However, she didn’t want to leave her son alone.

After tucking her child in, she slept on the couch with her son. Around 1 a.m., for no particular reason, she woke up and couldn’t fall asleep, which was unusual for her. To pass the time, she decided to prepare a snack and scroll through her phone while thinking that getting up at this time of night was not like her at all.

An hour later, as she finally started to doze off, she heard a door open. Initially, she thought her husband had woken up to go to the bathroom. But something told her to sit up and watch the back door. To her horror, someone was standing there, trying to enter her house.

She screamed, surprising the potential intruder who fled. Fortunately, her family was not harmed, and the mother couldn’t help but feel grateful. She was thankful that her instinct told her not to leave her son alone downstairs. And thankful that something in her mind prevented her from sleeping. And grateful that the individual fled when she screamed. Her parental intuition guided her to act and react in a way she might not have otherwise adopted. It may have saved everyone’s lives.

Modern science defines parental intuition as an innate ability to understand what is best for one’s child. Other interpretations characterize this intuition as an intuitive knowledge of when something is wrong, suboptimal, or when dangers threaten one’s child.

While these definitions provide information, they do not answer the question of the origin of parental intuition.

Is it encoded in our evolutionary DNA?

Are these survival instincts passed down through generations of child-rearing experience?

Or does it fall into the spiritual realm, with angels or spiritual guides assisting us and our children to avoid harm?

Melissa Ifill, LCSW, describes parental intuition as our “instinct that guides us throughout life.”

She explains that this “sixth sense” is amplified when emotionally connected to people. As parents, this instinct can be particularly strengthened due to the emotional bond with our children and the link we share through DNA.

Eric Warren Jr. agrees.

“Parental intuition is the automatic feeling of making the right decision that parents develop over time in raising their children,” he says. “This parental intuition acts as an internal compass, helping parents guide their children in their choices and avoid certain actions.”

You have likely been in a situation where your instinct guided you to take action or prompted you to avoid something.

Have you followed this instinct by trusting it or ignoring it?

“Trusting your intuition in all situations allows you to act by your values and what your mind desires,” explains Ifill. “The mind, body, and soul are perfectly aligned in everything we do.

So, the instinctive feeling you experience combines your conscious and unconscious mind. Trusting your intuition allows you to understand yourself better and adjust your behaviors based on those of your children. And, if done accurately, it can contribute to developing closer relationships with them.

And it starts with giving it respect. “Maternal and paternal instincts are a tangible reality, and when you feel that something is wrong, understand that you are qualified to investigate,” Warren explains.

“Of course, as children grow, you seek to develop a relationship of trust. But never let your desire for trust override your need for evaluation.”

He adds, “It is essential to cultivate curiosity when your instinct speaks to you. Learning to soothe your nervous system and continually engaging in ‘self’ learning helps you decide how your body communicates with you, thus arousing curiosity to understand what it expresses.

We must exercise our curiosity before reacting impulsively to these feelings because intuition can often be confused with narratives and ideas influenced by the ego. Narratives and ideas based on the ego can harm relationships and hinder our children’s growth. It is therefore imperative to distinguish between our reactions and act from a perspective of well-being rather than fear.”

Melissa Ifill offers these expert tips to parents who want to trust their intuition more and understand it better:

Parental intuition

Practice listening to your body daily.

Make sure you are in a state of calm – deep breathing techniques are particularly effective for this.

Be attentive to sensations in your body.

Ask your body about the meaning of these sensations.

Ask why these sensations are essential.

Choose how you want to react to this information.

Keep track of your feelings, your chosen responses, and the results obtained.

Familiarize yourself with your patterns. Identifying which feelings and responses lead to the desired results and which do not.

Adjust and repeat.

Warren asserts that the mouth can lie, but the instinct is not really. Trust it, as it is beneficial for both you and your family.

“Parental intuition is the ability to ‘know’ something without consciously thinking about it. Following it can help you make more informed decisions as a parent,” Warren explains. “Using intuition in parenting is valuable in many ways. Mainly to protect your children from danger or harm, whether it is present in person or through a screen. Parental intuition is an essential ingredient in creating a healthy family environment.
