As a psychotherapist, family therapist, and teacher working with children and parents, I came to realize that there are no rulebooks in being a parent. Rather there is a spontaneous wisdom and intelligence present when we relax body and mind instead of trying to micromanage our thoughts and emotions.
Our own state of mind and what we bring into any relationship is the single most important key factor.
Being a father and grandfather a simple, yet profound, education in the nature of mind has given me more love, compassion, clarity and ability to really listen, opening mind and heart to my kids and everyone I work with, then any other training.
I live in Sweden and enjoy being with my three adult children and two grandchildren interacting and sharing a life full of laughter, harmony and empowerment despite the challenges appearing.
