Family – Managing the Challenges.
Family, is important to everyone, but… Modern families are complicated. Relationships, kids, parenting, step-families, disability, extended families, the list is endless as are the challenges they present! We all want good relationships with our nearest and dearest. We also all want to be able to handle any problems as they arise. I can’t tell you how much I have struggled over the years with various aspects of family life. But as I look back I know what I would do again and I know what I wouldn’t. I’m not scared now, to look for advice and information when I need it. But when I was younger and my children little,I worried about being judged. It felt like a real weakness. It isn’t.
Family and the Blog
This section of the blog focuses on various aspects of family life and relationships. Parenting, step-families, extended families, education, disability and special needs. I am a teacher with 11 years experience, a parent with 18 years experience and step-parent with 12 years experience, so I will be sharing my personal and professional experiences and expertise in these areas.
As the blog grows I hope to set up groups on social media so that we can build a community that shares and supports each other as we deal with the challenges we face in our families. Mine at the moment is preparing for my empty nest, letting my boys go, giving them the freedom to build their own lives, when really I want to hang on to them forever, screaming ‘No!! Don’t leave me!!’
