Session: The Gift of Being a Flawed Parent: How Our Mistakes, Fears and Conflicts Help Us Raise Children with Authenticity, Empathy and Resilience

Instead of seeing our so-called flaws as defects, we can explore our anger, fear, shame, self-doubt and conflicts to actually become more inspired, peaceful and connected parents. Lu explores the power of our story on our perceptions, responses and communication with our children, and sheds light on the purpose of our imperfections and vulnerabilities to grow and connect us.
