LAJTI Parent Workshop
In what ways have you/your family/your kids grown during this time?
Getting to know each other and an appreciation for each other. My two teens have been spending more time together because they can’t see their other friends. I think this has brought a new appreciation for each other.
my son is learning to cook and my daughter is cooking and baking new things
right now are out biking together after fighting earlier today
My daughter has been finding a lot of art to do on social media: painting, tie-dye, learning songs on her guitar, etc.
Son has joined five Fantasy Football groups and keeping busy chatting with everyone there
In what way have you created balance during this time?
I’ve been struggling with this and have tried so many things but nothing seems to stick
I make sure I fill my “pitcher” so I have more to give to everyone. I have support groups and make time for friends and try to exercise with my daughter that makes me so happy on our sunset walks. I also have taken multiple zoom classes (one from my temple on Self Compassion. Learned so much. I have also started journaling at night as much as I can.
This is a great chart. The question is HOW to get your teen to follow? If I show this chart to my son i’m liable to get a shoe chucked in my general direction
I have noticed that I have to engage in the activities I tell my teens to get involved in (like those on this chart) or it doesn’t work. I need to walk and exercise and engage in family activities and get off my phone too.
i love this slide.
In what ways have found hope or meaning during this time?
Studying spirituality and Kabbalah
What are the value pillars that act as a foundation for your family?
