Yes, therapy does teach us what a good parent brings to the relationship ... unconditional acceptance, support, understanding, patience, love, boundaries (darn it!) and the list goes on ...

The truth is that I am not comfortable with babies, and I did have to work really hard to learn what my children needed. My T always tells me to listen to my heart, do what you wished your mom could have told you. It's not that easy. I find myself telling my 11 year old daughter, "I'll need to think about that and get back to you," before responding to a concern of hers. Often, I'll ask my T for advice. One of the best things she told me to tell my daughter with peer conflicts, "Sometimes our friends disappoint us." Or another, "Is that a quality you want in a friend?" I never can come up with these on my own : -(
