A-mazing we will go

Sometimes as parents we feel ourselves in a maze – turning corners here – backtracking – wondering where to go next – knowing there must be a different way out – thinking is anyone else having this same kind of problem – feeling panicky – what should I do – but arriving, at last, to the exit.

I believe the exit is the clarity that comes when we recognize that we are circling and repeating the same thought pattern – evoking fear and stress but not stepping far enough away to see what it might be that we can do differently.

Once we begin to look at the situation in a more positive and less fear-based way – what one step could be taken to start to change the situation – we discover our exit out.

But sometimes it’s really a challenge to recognize what that change could be.

That’s why I encourage you to check out our Parenting Classes starting up this fall at The Parenting Place; dial up our Warmline,  with your parenting question – 784-8125;  make a one-on-one Family Coaching appointment to talk about your concern;  come to one of our Play Shoppes or Parent Connection  for support and fun with other parents, children and Parent Educators; or find out about The Parenting Places’s  Parents as Teachers home visiting program.

We  don’t want you to have to do this alone.

Now – speaking of mazes –

  Join The Parenting Place  Friday Play Shoppe on October 4th at the Hidden Trails Corn Maze, W47o4 Hwy 16, just a few miles north of the Mall, at 9:30 AM.  We will play, go through the children’s mazes, take a wagon ride, have a treat, enjoy being outdoors. There is a small charge for the wagon ride and if you purchase a pumpkin.

Any questions, please give me a call at 784-8125.
