209. How to Repair as a Parent

“Time heals all wounds.” 
“If Mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy!”
“Blood is thicker than water.”

We’ve all heard antidotal phrases that sound nice but may not feel as good. The truth is, within families we wound each other. Sometimes unknowingly, sometimes with the best of intentions to be helpful, and sometimes out of our own anger and emotions to hurt another. 

Maybe time alone isn’t going to heal what we said. Perhaps our teen doesn’t think their painful family ties are thicker than friend ties. Maybe mom’s feelings shouldn’t be the object of everyones efforts… 

In todays Pivot Parenting episode I break down the pain caused within family relationships and how we can work to repair them better than ignoring, spending time and money to win favor back, or otherwise manipulating them into forgiveness. 

The good news is, you don’t need to be perfect- never upsetting them or getting it wrong. (Even when it’s out of anger and we meant to lash out in the moment.) Listen in as I explain the very simple, one step process of how to effectively repair relationship wounds
