How Parents Can Handle Separation | Ep #17
Mary opens up about her own personal experience with separation and the emotions that are coming up for her as her oldest son leaves for boarding school. She talks about how important it is to remember that when parents are well and taken care of, they are so much better at the job of parenting. We can choose to linger on the sadness, or choose to think of the opportunities our students might have on their own. By managing our feelings we create space for our children to feel emotional, and we demonstrate great leadership by doing that.
