One of the great things about Lockdown (and Level 3 if you’re an Osteopath!) is that you have to stay home and it gives you a chance to do the things that a) need doing but also b) you are interested in.

Today I’ve continued with the Emotional Parenting Course by John and Julie Gottmann that I started last year. I’m up to Chapter 4. I found these. Perfect to share in Lockdown.

I’m not going to even try to re-invent the wheel. I’m just planning on learning the ‘how’ and ‘why’ behind it. The Gottmanns are the experts. I adore their method. That’s why I’m studying it.

Alastair, my partner, who has been a relationship counsellor for over 20 years, rates them as highly as any of the experts in his field.

Parents. Try these questions. I think I’ll try them in my own relationship – with my 50 year old child!!!
