The Fallacy of Perfect Parenting (Session 1 of 3)
September 24 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The Fallacy of Perfect Parenting
This session will explore how the pressures to be perfect result in some parents feeling overwhelmed and inadequate. Many parents complain of a lack of control in their own homes and a feeling that their children’s needs are running the household. They may remove barriers to success and end up unintentionally disempowering their children. They may try to be their child’s best friend, losing focus of the primary responsibility, to raise a fully functioning adult. In this session, we will normalize what parents experience, how they learn to be parents, learn about boundaries and effective communication, and also explore Pia Mellody’s concepts regarding affirming, nurturing and setting limits.
