We discuss two related topics:
Know anyone who lives life through their children? Can you be too close to your children? Do you know parents that have a case of the “We’s” – Do you find parents who say things like “We are trying to make the soccer team” or “We decided to do ballet this summer.” This can sometimes be a sign that parents might be a little too close to their children.
We also discuss a related term called “Empathetic Distress” based on an article that appeared in “Spirituality & Health- Is It Possible To Be Empathetic To A Fault?” Can there be a dark side to compassion? We discuss how you might be getting the exact opposite result of your intention.
