Today was the first meeting of the UUEEC Community Parenting Group. The topic was “What does it mean to be real to your children?” The group discussed what it means to be genuine and the importance of giving ourselves permission to make mistakes. We talked the fact that we shouldn’t feel guilty when we leave our children with their other parent because time with parents as individuals is important. Homework was to find something small to do for yourself.
Next month’s topic will be “What do you want to be when you grow up?” We will focus on how you’ve changed since having children and what your goals are for the future.
