So often parents strive to provide their children with the life choices and opportuniites for their children to have wonderful and satisfying lives. And then how much dismay and heartache when the children resist that guidance and demand to make there own choices which as parents you fear may have less than optimal outcomes.
The conflict that arises in these situations can be messy, painful and leave both parents and childred feeling hurt, misunderstood, frustrated and often resentful.
Restorative Relationships offers another way. A way in which the needs of both the parent and the children are acknowledged, regarded, and in which the outcome is arrived at in a way where both parents and children feel in choice and empowered.
