“THE PERSON BEHIND THE PARENT” : GROUP SESSION FOR PARENTS

The Inner Space Team announces a group session, ‘The Person behind the Parent’, on the 11th of March, 2012. We held one such session on the 20th of November, 2011 and felt the need to reach out to you once again with what we believe are important perspectives for every parent to consider. As a parent you have dropped your children off to classes, therapy sessions, have attended Parent-Teacher meetings, open houses, been called to school to hear complaints or praises, fretted, fumed, stressed and of course loved it to some extent.

Time to love yourself, we say!

Parenting, in today’s time is not easy and we at Inner Space understand that completely. Parents invest a lot of physical and emotional energy in their children. This is necessary and fulfilling at some level. However, in due course of time, they often miss out on focusing on themselves as individuals. In other words, the ‘person’ behind the ‘parent’ slowly takes a backseat in the whole storm of trying to be a good parent or even simply trying to manage several roles. Parents become either unaware or avoidant of their own needs, wishes and emotions or too stressed and tired to do much about them.

All this, undoubtedly, for the sake of happy, flourishing children! But will tired, stressed parents be able to encourage happiness in their children? We do not think so! Hence, we decided to hold a session on parenting that focuses on the parent and not on the child. We want to look keenly at working towards the parent’s happiness as an individual before striving for more effective parenting. In this session let’s talk about ‘you’ for a change!

Please enroll quickly as we have a small space and number of people we can accommodate runs out fast.

This session will be held on the 11th of March, Sunday, from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm in the Inner Space premises.

The charges of the same will be Rs 750
