Seasons: On Dormancy & Growth Compassion Parenting Podcast

    • Parenting

In this episode, Dr. Mary Wilde discusses the importance of maintaining primary connection to the things you uniquely love, even during the busy season of parenting. As parents we often approach growth in one of 3 ways:
-Giving up on the idea (thinking there’s no time for it or that it’s some kind of indulgence)
-Pursuing growth in a balanced way (or)
-Pursuing growth in an unbalanced way
Except for periods of crisis or transition, we can usually find time to pursue growth by using "edge" time, protected time, or by involving our kids in the process. As we find ways to continue to grow, we will be more fulfilled and effective parents.
