Stop and Notice

Sometimes we parents are seriously Type A toward our attachment challenged children.  We are forever working our kids to be better, be focused, be kinder, be organized, be mature, be motivated, be normal.  Wha?  Our kids by definition are working as hard as they can figuring out how to feel safe in their own skins, in their own families. This thing called family life is complex and filled with emotional landmines. 
 
From where your child began, stop and notice how far s/he has come. Give yourselves a little break from bettering every moment. Slow down. 
Celebrate now. 
Love Matters,
Ce Eshelman, LMFT
