In this episode, I talk about my kid’s graduations. Yup. 3 kids and 3 big 2020 milestone events. Graduation from middle school, high school and college. The virtual grad ceremonies and car parades are just not the same as the real thing. Sigh. Like me, I know many of you are watching your kids go through LOTS of disappointments right now. We hate when the people are disappointed. I think many of us are so uncomfortable at the thought of our kids experiencing disappointment that we tend to fixate and accidentally make it into a bigger deal. The world is experiencing lots of things right now that leave us reeling in upset, disappointment and feeling out of control. We are in a period of collective vulnerability...AND an opportunity for collective resilience building. It’s true that the 2020 graduates will forever be known as the “2020 Graduates”. AND maybe they will wear that label with a resilient badge of honor rather than fondling a “life isn’t fair” story. This week’s episode will help you to foster the story of resilience for your kids. Enjoy!
