In order to effectively shift relationship dynamics experienced between parent and child, siblings, and those outside of the family unit, one must examine the relationship as it is now; how it came to be, what actions, ideas and philosophies have laid the current foundation.
Then, one must acknowledge the relationship in its current state, exploring and embracing the responsibility of the now.
Finally, one has a decision to make. Is the current state working for all parties? Is communication effective AND authentic? Are both parent and child being their true selves. Evolution occurs with open discourse; and strategic and respectful planning for improved familial outcomes.
