本周教育讲座 Education Seminar

 

Talk title: Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves with Joy and Gratitude

时间:本周日12/14, 10-11:30 AM
地点:B1 (注册室)

Speaker: Angela Chiu
Parenthood is a journey of maturation and growth if we dare to learn more and teach less. When we have the courage to stop defending the way we are, or the way our parents raised us, we can open up the possibility that we are much greater and more magnificent and capable than we thought we were.
A happy person needs to have autonomy and sense of value. An autonomous child, whose life flows in her direction, acts productively because she wants to. She acts out of joy and love, not out of fear or need to earn approval. As parents, we need to get our own emotional reactions and conditioning out of the way so our child can be who she is without being held back by our past, by our anxiety about the future, or by our concern about what others may say about us as parents. We can nurture without shaping, like a gardener who waters and flowers, but doesn’t help them open nor choose their shapes or colors.
In this talk, I will share with you my 12-year journey of motherhood, how I shifted from my fear and desire to be in control, to an open and tender heart filled with gratitude and burning desire to understand my children and better myself.
Speaker Bio:

Since 2006, she has served as a moderator for PCE (Parents and Children Education) club online forum with over 900 members.
