Listen in as Cyndi and Matthew break down the following insights.
Major Takeaways from Season Two, Episodes 6-10:
Check for parent bias. We can't always control where our children might excel. We also can't direct the career paths where they express interest. However, we can monitor our biases and do our very best to support them in whatever direction they pursue.
Embrace incidents of serendipity. When things go wrong, or we experience disruptions on our journey, we can benefit by hitting the pause button and opening ourselves up to what we think, feel, and notice in the experience.
