MANN COUNSELING GROUP 2019, DESIGN BY JEN LEA LC

Parenting

In the 21st Century

Have a group event full of plugged in parents?
Book Mary Ellen to speak on Parenting in the 21st Century.

What is our job description?

Parents offer attachment based presence and leadership for three purposes:

Perspective & Wisdom

We have their long term best interests at heart

Protection & Advocacy

We have their back - defending their reputation, needs and desires

Belief & Hope

We give them the benefit of the doubt, when they struggle

Below are some areas of focus that I see come up in my practice and own life often, topics that need their own space and understanding to navigate with greater effectiveness.

Listening

There's nothing more important, and it doesn't look the way you may think.

Acceptance vs. Agreement

You can accept without agreeing.

Intention vs. Impact

What you mean to do matters, what it actually does matters more.

Indulgence vs. Flexibility

Sharing power instead of building entitlement.

Assessment vs. Accussation

How to learn and understand, rather than reach a verdict.

Hurt vs. Harm

The difference matters; how you respond to both does too.
