What I’ve seen and felt incredibly helpful in the closeness and growth of this treasured relationship each year is to tell him all about myself, not a one dimensional sliver of me or what’s supposedly in the “parent rulebook”.
We sit and we talk. We really talk.
I tell him about my life and about the range of my moments: those happy, confusing, sad, decided and in-between, over and over again, showing my own humanness (though I don’t say it outright it’s akin to letting him feel into this truth: I am you, you are me and we have range…things come, things go but what stays is this deeper understanding and belief in/of yourself).
Their sense of community starts with us. #schooloflife
Let’s make happiness your business by creating your authentic brand…
To the best of the rest of your life.
Life is good.
