We need to talk about expectations because it seems to be standard these days that everyone’s expectations are too damn high.
As I see it, the challenge for our generation is that we are ‘unlearning’. For example, there’s still a tendency to believe that adults can feel and express anger, but our children must not.
If I ask you what you want your kids to be, chances are you’ll say ‘happy,’ right?
Lockdowns are REALLY challenging for your mental health – and for your children’s wellbeing too. In a time of global uncertainty, I feel a call to sit gently with our emotions and take a conscious approach to the structure of the day.
