Let’s Find the Joy!
If only children came with instructions manuals! How many times have you heard that saying? Of course there are thousands and thousands of “instruction manuals” out there in the form of parenting books, TV gurus, blogs and well meaning family and friends. The challenge is to find The Manual that fits your kid, your family, you, in this moment. Not so easy. Effective parenting is a moving target. Just when we think we have something figured out – it all changes.
Despite the challenges, there are some guidelines that can be helpful for most parent-child relationships in most situations. We can help our children grow up to be healthy, resilient, caring global citizens who experience love, meaning, and joy in their lives. It’s what we want for ourselves and what we so desperately want for our children.
My program for cultivating amazing relationships between parents and children, Relate With Joy™, can help your family connect more effectively leading to greater contentment in your home life. It’s not going to be easy, but I promise it’ll be worth it. And isn’t that parenting in a nutshell? It’s the hardest and most wonderful thing we’ll ever do – our greatest gift and our greatest responsibility.
