I’m currently enjoying being an awesome therapeutic parent.
As part of my upcoming assessment I need to fill in a number of scenarios of what I would do in certain situations. There were lots of problems like dealing with story-telling, addressing destructive behaviour and healing low self-esteem. I wish I could share my responses, but I’m trying to make sure I maintain anonymity and that includes from whoever reads my file.
Needless to say in all my scenarios I was calm, measured, appropriate and basically rocked the whole therapeutic parenting thing .
Now if only my kids will be considerate enough to give me written notice of all their behaviours, with an appropriate length of time to develop a response…
Oh well, this will probably be the only time I feel like a competent parent, let alone a competent therapeutic parent. I’m going to enjoy it while it lasts!
