The past two years have been challenging and trying for most of us on so many levels. And while there is much that could be said about this right here and now, for today and our shared topic of mindfully raising an attached family, I would like to focus on the particular challenge of staying connected—across distances and across family generations—during these unprecedented times.
When we embark upon our parenting journey, we may not realize how the experience will challenge us, shape us, and transform us as human beings along the way.
Some may think of “parenting” as having the right words, identifying natural consequences, or figuring out safety limits and healthy routines. Nurturing parenting is so much more: It is a lifelong relationship with our children, and ourselves, that enriches our lives and grows us with each passing milestone.
