Supporting Parents Globally!
I would love the opportunity to share my new Community initiative through you to help the wider community as you do…
There have been recent stories in the Australian media about high numbers of parents taking out AVO ’s against their teenage children. Are we seeing the disintegration of the family unit at this time?
The health and well being of a society is built on the foundations of each person. The health and well being of each person is built on it’s support systems and societal structures of relationship, which support this growth. Successful family life in Western cultures is pivotal to the greater good of a society and a species! How are we currently going with parenting in this society?
In my personal experience I have experienced the pain of losing a child.
I know the depth of this pain because I have felt it in more ways than one…
The death of my full term baby and the alienation and disenfranchisement as a parent I felt following divorce, with a very challenging ex husband.
I know many parents who have been burned in the fiery cauldron of suffering and pain, that comes with alienation and disenfranchisement as a parent.
It takes enormous strength of character to endure when the depths of love, of a parent for their child, are so monumental…
Parenting in prior generations was fraught with challenges also – my parents’ both had only one birth parent to contribute to their entire childhood.
Many of us who have defined our happiness on the basis of our parenting have been forced to redefine our lives and our happiness in other ways, when parenting runs a different course to the one we have ideally held in our heart…
Parenting is the most rewarding, challenging, difficult and important role in society. We are not trained for this huge responsibility. We often stumble through striving at all times to do the best we can within our range of skills, understanding and capability. Sometimes we falter and fall. Sometimes we suffer in silence. Sometimes we just require more resources and education. Sometimes we require emotional support, understanding & interaction with others going through similar things.
Due to the absolute need for more parental resources in our society I have decided to set up a powerful Group Parents After Kids to address all these issues for parents. I also have a “Parents After Kids” Facebook business page with a lot of people liking it.
The PAK Group provides a supportive and interactive community, tools, information and resources for all types of parents and parenting issues. This site has already had members stating how much it has helped them so this is really satisfying.
