“It’s Not About the Cup”

Last weekend we discussed this topic in our parent workshop entitled “Examining Our Expectations.” We shared our common struggles and deepened our sense of community by coming together with a common goal-to reflect on our practices as parents. We talked about the feelings that might inform the behavior that we see in our children, and what might lie beneath their seemingly demanding nature. In this episode of her podcast, Janet Lansbury addresses a parent who wrote in with a specific concern…and makes the leap to finding a way to be okay with a child’s disappointment and upset. If you aren’t already familiar with Janet Lansbury I highly recommend her blog and podcast series, both of which can be found here. Let me know your thoughts…
