Workshop: 'Involving Your Partner in Parenting When They Are Away for Work'
Take time out of your busy schedule and change what is frustrating you and having a negative impact in your life.
Maybe it hasn't occured to you to involve your partner in parenting when they are away for work. It certainly hadn't occured to me!
Until one day I had a massive AHA moment! Up until that moment, I just got on with parenting with a 'I've got this' attitude but one day our son asked me for an iPhone. I was about to answer when I suddenly thought: "Why am I taking this parenting decision on my own?"
"Is Distance a good enough reason for his dad not to get involved?"
Parenting together doesn’t only mean doing discipline together.
If you are an expat parent who has a travelling partner, I invite you to join this 90 min group coaching workshop to:
- Discover the three levels of parenting you can both be involved with
- How to support your travelling partner’s relationship with your children
- The questions you can ask your partner on how they would like to be involved
Next date: 16 May 2022
Workshop: 'Reconnecting as a family after a business trip'
Your partner has just come home from a business trip. They are stressed out from work, you are exhausted from parenting non stop. You want to go out, they want to stay in. Sound familiar ?
If you are an expat who has a travelling partner, I invite you to join this 90 min group coaching workshop to:
- Clarify your expectations
- Make space for the return
- Identify frustrations
- Discover strategies to a smoother transition back into family life
The workbook will include personal work for the section on reconnecting as a couple. You will not be asked to share on reconnecting as a couple in small groups.
“We are made to feel like failures in self-management. And if anyone knows about management, it’s Godzilla.”
Phyllis Adler, lawyer, mediator, and psychotherapist describing what happens when her husband comes home after a business trip.
“My Friend Godzilla”, reprinted in the book ‘Forced to Fly’
Phyllis Adler goes on to explain that she finally understood that all her husband’s attempts at re-organising the family were because he wanted to feel part of it again.
