Parenting Our Future

Playing sports is a right of passage for most kids as they grow up. It’s an exciting time for kids and parents as they learn a new sport, build new skills and create new friendships. I’ve loved watching my kids play their sports and meeting new people who have become some of our closest friends.

Parenting Our Future

Our mind has a constant stream of thoughts. Sometimes it seems like the thoughts come from a group of jerks who only want to judge you, put you down and tell you you aren’t good enough. How often have you told yourself you aren't a good enough parent?

Parenting Our Future

As a mom of a child with multiple diagnoses I can attest to the struggles we’ve had raising our son over the last 16 years.  I’ve dealt with a wide range of emotions including, shame, rage, disappointment, guilt and regret.  Every parent and family are different but we can all say that after a diagnosis we’ve felt scared.  Scared at what the future looks like for our family and most importantly, for our child.

We all know that communication is important but we aren’t ever taught exactly how to do it effectively.  The fact is, language matters and there are simple shifts in the way we talk that can get us closer to the results we want in our relationships and with our kids.

Parenting Our Future

I don’t think there is one parent who doesn’t worry about their child’s future when they are struggling in school. It can be hard to get to the bottom of why they are struggling, is it laziness, the school, learning challenges or maybe you think it’s your fault; you aren’t pushing them hard enough?
