Do you know a parent in denial?
I talk to a lot of parents everyday!
How many you ask? Probably 10-25.
I'm guessing- I should really keep track one day because the
actual number might be even more!
Anyway... there are times when I talk to a parent in denial.
This denial could be related to a number of issues their child has.
A few examples include:
- friend choices
- clothing choices
- overall choices
The list could go on and on-Surely you're thinking of a few things right now :)
It can be very frustrating when someone so close to a potentially dangerous situation
can't seem to
see accept what is actually happening.
Does being too emotionally close the situation make the reality blurred?
I recently tweeted about an article related to parents in denial.
You can read the article "Not My Kid: when parents are in denial" here.
I was able to relate to the article because of a
situation I was recently involved with at school.
Denial is not helping your child :(
I also wrote another I AM poem!
Can you related to any of this?
I would love to hear from you :)
On a totally unrelated note....Happy Birthday!
Within my family of 5- three of us will have birthdays this week!
