Unless you have walked in my shoes you cannot understand...but I would really like it if you could!
Wouldn't it be great if our family, friends and the professionals in our lives "got" what we are trying to do for our kids? Well at least, "got it" better than they do.
Having the understanding and support of those around us would make all of the difference in the world. However, for most, it is really difficult to understand how to be there for us as well as for our children. The way to help our children heal is sometimes very counter-intuitive, creating hurdles that stand in the way of others supporting our parenting choices and being loving and kind to our children.
Unfortunately, not understanding results in the alienation and strain of our closest relationships and those other relationships we had looked to be able to count on for support. So many families report feeling judged and questioned by those that know their heart the best. They report having had to step back from their closest relationships which resulted in feelings of hopelessness. Others look to professionals to help them help their children and are met with blame, disbelief in what the parent is experiencing and true lack of knowledge or experience in how to help.
While it can be difficult for friends, family and professionals to know how to help us, it is NOT a lost cause. It is up to us as adoptive, foster, kinship and guardian parents to TEACH them. We need to learn how to put what we know, what we need, and what they can do in a format that they can not only understand, but be empowered by! I want to help you do that...I have worked with helping many people better understand their role and how they can REALLY help! These techniques have worked with people like...your siblings, your other children, your parents, your friends and neighbors, pastors, teachers, therapists, other health care professionals and more!
SO don't ask HOW, ask WHEN.
In my December Inner Circle we are going to delve into some specifics of how to help those around us learn to "hold us up" and be involved in the healing of our children and the happiness of our entire family. You will be able to fine tune your family's plan in our sessions together!
This months Inner Circle is going to SPRINGBOARD you in to an entire year of building or rebuilding your Support System. The months to follow in Inner Circle will add to your ability to reach out to others, to regain momentum, to help you to feel understood and supported! Being part of this powerful, committed, positive group of parents will change your day, your week, your month...your life!
