LET US BE US, BUT HELP US BE MORE TOO.
I THINK PARENTS AND KIDS NEED TO TAKE BREAK FROM THERAPIES SOMETIMES. I THINK THINGS CAN BE LEARNED INFORMALLY FROM EVERYDAY ACTIVITIES.
Gems from Our Parents & Coaches
I don't think there is a "one size fits all" approach ... sometimes we need to just try things and see what works for him.
When we shift from "I want to change you" to "I want to CONNECT with you," then you see the doors open and the walls of the box fall down. That mindset, that energy, is what helps that relationship solidify.
Our kids gravitate towards what feels REAL and NATURAL. Where do you see your child gravitating toward?
It felt like we needed to get our kids on a new path, and it was all about thinking about what path works for them. We just focus on going in the right direction. Eventually when you try enough stuff, throw out what doesn't work and keep what does, you eventually go in a direction that works.
The more we communicate with love, the more we see their response. If we join in the silence, there's so much we can hear from them.
Create space for who YOU are in the relationship.
Be you. Allow yourself to be you. Allow others to be themselves.
The issue is not the emotion. It is being stuck in the emotion.
We can live LIFE now, finally! It's no longer so much pressure to do so much. We can just enjoy life. Today is going be a great day because we're going to do what works best for us.
We are switching from deficit-based outlook to a "What can we do?" outlook.
How do you think outside YOUR box? We need to takeownership of the box we've created around ourselves, before we can move beyond it.
