Listen To Sue Discussing a Dilemma with a Daughter………..
‘My daughter leaves home tomorrow’
I am feeling…..Empty Nest Syndrome / Sad / Not Needed
Step 1. (How I would like to feel…)
Acceptance / Fulfilment / Progressive
Step 2. (Quality Questions for self…)
How can I make this a happy occasion for all of us?
Am I focussing on the ‘down’ side of this situation?
Step 3. (Practical steps leading to Positive Results…)
Focus on the benefits to your daughter life of moving out and on in her life.
See this as a new era for you and embrace it with excitement and enthusiasm.
Share you thoughts with someone close to you (other than your daughter).
Write your daughter a letter, expressing your love and gratitude of having her over the last ‘x’ years.
