When it was hard to reach out to grown-ups,I would reach out to their kids & teens. The kids were a bridge to their heart and consequently a catalyst for their own growth & change in order to enjoy more quality of life for themselves and – as a whole- for their families and kids.
It is not an exception to hear a Teen sharing that she tries to stay away from home as much as possible. Subtle depression, victimhood, pressure, fights, pseudo harmony, overworked, stressed…the usual, issues of grown-ups. No matter how much parents pay or give their kids, Kids & Teens learn by example and always seek for role models.
What a girl remembers when she is grown, is not the latest fancy IPhone she died for, when she became 15 years old, but the good talks she had with her mom at the kitchen table and the times of laughter and joy they shared.
“As much as kids & teens are a centerpiece of life, parents give the most, when they care of their own heart center first and lead a life by example – less perfect, real & joyous.”
