The PTCC sessions have given me and my kids a great outlet, plus they get a chance to hear from other parents and their peers about what they are going through. As a single mom, I have always struggled to open up to my kids (a 6th and 9th grader) but now I have a new confidence in sharing.
My story is important and what I value as a mom must be communicated to my kids. My kids shared with me after a session that they thought it was so cool how I was able to share what happened to me back in the day. I was so excited. When I talk I want my kids to listen. PTCC has helped me see "how" I say something is just as important as "what" I say. The attitude behind my words are just as important as the words themselves.
We, as a family have put into practice "listening with full attention". It shows my kids what they have to say is important, especially to me. Whatever we are doing, we stop and give our undivided attention. Putting those skills to practice has strengthened our family and for that we are grateful.
