Speaker: The Rev. Dena McPhetres

Dedication of Parents and Children
It seems to me that every child is an exceptional child and every parent is exceptional too, because it is not easy being human and being subject to so many pressures to measure up. How can we support parents and children to resist the pressure to be extraordinary all the time? My reflections will in-clude Andrew Solomon’s vertical and horizontal identities analysis and some of Brene Brown’s work on raising shame-resilient children.
