Re: Ask A Pro Live: Opening Up To Parents

I love the ideas of writing letters too! And the fact there's no pressure to talk out loud about stuff if your daughter doesn't want to @Janine-RO- that's an awesome idea!

This was a great chat tonight guys! It gave me some perspective of a parent's/caregiver's point of view Smiley Happy

Re: Ask A Pro Live: Opening Up To Parents

Just wanted to quickly jump off @Lost_Space_Explorer5 and say I love the letter writing idea too, as I said earlier I used to text my mum (and still do), I remember sometimes putting things like 'reply to this in chat, not out loud'. It can just be so much easier, whether it's allowing time to think (so not acting on immediate emotions), or the weight of the conversation not being so intense... it's just a nice alternative!

Oh totally @Hozzles @Lost_Space_Explorer5 , it's amazing what  difference it makes, I actually can't remember where I first heard about the idea (I think I read it somewhere), but it really helps so much with those tough conversations. 

 

I'm logging off now but just wanted to say thanks again, it has been really lovely chatting with you all!

Re: Ask A Pro Live: Opening Up To Parents

I'm so bummed I missed this conversation!! I'm always missing the live chats 🙃

 

But thankyou so much for running it @Janine-RO and @Hannah-RO. I've just been reading through it all cause I've actually been thinking about opening up to my parents recently so this has been a great insight into some awesome tips! 

 

Thank you so much for sharing it! You guys are awesome! ❤

Re: Ask A Pro Live: Opening Up To Parents

@Hannah-RO @Janine-RO  what a lovely chat! I was actually online last night but just double booked with another uni seminar, sigh! This chat was so lovely to read back through, it's nice to hear about the forum community a bit more too and how REachout sits in the wider context of our lives. Good job everyone!
