I’ve been feeling highly inadequate when dealing with Oliver. I want to be empathetic, to understand him, to be on his side, and to be the parent that I want to be for him, but instead I often struggle feeling empathy and even love.⁣
I don’t have solutions or words of wisdom, and I don’t want advice: I just want to be real with you, and show you that it doesn’t matter how many parenting books and online courses I have written, I still go through the same struggles as you. This is real life.⁣
[We’re sleeping here tonight. In front of these mountains we had a little heart to heart with Oliver. It won’t fix much, but it felt good. I’ll tell you more about it when I’m ready]⁣
