It might sound odd at first to suggest re-thinking the practice of tickling. Kids laugh when you tickle, right, so they must like it? Not necessarily. There is an element of losing control over your response in tickling that we don’t consider; possibly because it is such a tradition. I wholeheartedly advocate for examining the tradition of tickling (and the feelings that come up in response to questioning it!). This podcast is a great way to start. Podcast on tickling
Please join me for a listening partnership workshop.
A listening partnership is a tool for creating safety and support for yourself as a parent and person. This simple tool provides a path to more self-compassion.
Imagine a completely safe space where you can process your frustrations, pent up anger or tears and other uncomfortable feelings that come with parenting, free of judgement. A listening partnership provides that for you, and allows you to return to your parenting with fresh insight and energy.
Your patience for your children grows, and your ability to connect with your children deepens.
In this workshop, you will learn how to create a listening partnership. We’ll cover:
Why you can’t help but lose it with your kids sometimes, and how you can get yourself back on track.
How emotional hurts get passed down in families and how you can help yourself and other parents finally change family patterns.
Detailed guidance on how you can offload tension caused by grief, anger, guilt, frustration, fear, exhaustion, and much more.
Please join us, Saturday, June 16, at 3 PM. $40 per person.
Fellowship Hall of St Luke United Methodist Church, 1306 West Lynn Street, Austin, TX 78703
