Having Adult Children ~ Guest Mary Dravis-Parrish
Dancing Your Life ~ Corinna Stoeffl Radio Show
Once a parent, always a parent as the saying goes. Yet how does it look to be a parent to adult children? Are we willing to let them live their lives the way they choose? Or do we feel the need to interfere when they make a wrong choice? What does it mean for us parents to let the adult children to live their lives? When does the transition from child to adult start? Is it a gradual process or a sudden event? What could mark that transition and what would be the benefit of it?
As a child, living in a home of eight children, Mary Dravis-Parrish discovered many styles for living, learning and coping, which lead her on a path to teaching children and working with parents, educators and care givers to create greater ease in family living. Mary’s own parenting background began as a teen parent, and includes experience as a single parent, co-parent and stepparent; she is also a parent who lost her son to suicide. She understands the needs, demands, and dynamics parents’ and adults who interact with children, face day to day.
Mary has over 25 years of experience as an educator, trainer, empowerment coach, speaker, and a certified facilitator. She is the owner and practitioner of Simple Strategies for Family Living and the author of Empowered Parents Empowering Kids, A Guide to Be You Parenting and the co-author of Possibilities in Parenting. Mary is the host of the weekly radio show- Be You Parenting on the Inspired Choices Network. https://www.beyouparenting.com/ firstname.lastname@example.org
~ More About Dancing Your Life with Corinna Stoeffl ~
I love to watch ravens dance on the wind, the stronger the wind, the more fun they seem to have. What if we danced our lives?
What do I mean with that?
How much fun and ease can we have in our lives?
How much intensity would we allow ourselves to experience?
How much elegance would we enjoy?
What could change if we were in communion with others, with animals and plants, with the earth?
What if nothing had significance?
It is not that I know all or have answers to any of those questions above. I am curious, I like to explore, I will even jump if necessary in order to find out. Would you like to join me on that exploration? On this journey, I will use the tools of Access Consciousness®, the conversations we have and my love of looking at something from all different angles (what I jokingly call mental gymnastics.)
I invite you to a lighthearted and fun exploration of all of life.
