Watching my son graduate with his BA in Economics last week was quite a rite of passage – for all of us!
A huge pride in my son – a feeling that maybe I didn’t do so badly as his mum – a gratitude for my warm and loving husband – and a little nostalgia watching a young one set out on his life adventure. But also I thought of all the times we struggled as a family – got discouraged – lost faith in each other – and yet we came back and reached for each other and shaped the safety that helped us all grow. And I thought of all my EFT colleagues who do not just couple but FAMILY therapy helping parents and kids forge strong bonds.
We ARE – in the 21st century – learning how to do this – how to love – how to parent – there is huge hope in that.
