Peer Connection Upending Society

According to Gordon Neufeld in his ground breaking book, Hold Onto Your Kids, our society is turned upside down by seniors, parents, and teens turning to peers rather than familial connections.

Grandchildren need connections with their parents and grandparents even as they are exerting their independence.  In an interview for motheringanddaughtering.com , Neufeld expressed the need for teens to have these nurturing and natural connections.  Nature and Nurture go hand in hand and are not to be separated as they have in the last 50 years.

May you thrive in your natural nurturing.
