Hi Carol and Stacy I'm looking forward to the all star chat!
Here are some things I am up to:
I am thoroughly enjoying my writing for Chicago Parent Magazine and blog column (The Self-Aware Parent). I am offering “Conscious Parents discussion groups” in people’s homes….just gather your mom friends, share some food, have some wine, and let’s talk parenting! It gives moms the opportunity to dig a little deeper into themselves and their parenting.
Todd and I also offer couples discussion groups…it’s always nice to have the male perspective, too!
I teach in the Sociology Department at Dominican University (in the fall I teach Sociology of the Family, in the spring I teach Intro to Social Work). I teach the students about the importance of self care (for them, and for their future clients), emotions, and connection to self – my hope is that the students will choose a profession to offer support and encouragement to those in need and simultaneously take care of themselves so they don’t burn out. I also love doing Zen Parenting Radio with my husband - it brings us great joy andour hope is that the listener finds something that resonates. And of course, I am loving my time with my little ones – now 8, 6 and 4 – we are loving our Midwestern fall and we are contemplating Halloween costumes.
Thank you Cathy for giving us and our readers an update on what your up to. We are looking forward to our live chat Tuesday October 18th. Right here on our blog.
