From the Parenting Journey 1 Curriculum: Which ritual question do you like engaging with the majority of the time? 

Describe one situation this week that you might have handled better.

Why did you choose the answer you did?

I think this question speaks to our humanity. I make mistakes, I am not perfect, but I share that in common with everyone else. It is also a space in which we see an opportunity for growth: by acknowledging I could have handled a situation better, I have the ability to make changes and do things differently next time. It is incredibly empowering.
