Respecting My Child = Mommy Self-Care! I had an amazing experience of self-care today. And it all happened because I chose to respect my son! How did respect for my child translate into mommy self-care? Find out in my latest video! 1 Comment David on January 13, 2017 at 12:06 am Great story about your super sensitive son. I’m gonna have to try his methodology and only write when my voice hurts others. I see a book coming out of this by Ben to add to all the other books he’s written. As a father, I can take on the challenges of my 16 year old daughter and try and fix her problems at the cost of my own self care. As parents we often allow the tyranny of the urgent take the focus off ourselves and put it on our children at the cost of our own health and well being. Thanks for your great example of allowing Ben to walk this out and learn how to work through HIS challenge.
