“I didn’t come to the course for me, I came to see what I could do differently to my children to help them. I am so glad I hung in there and saw it through. I am so glad that the focus was on how I do things, which I now do very differently – thank you!”
Scott works for a multinational company and sees the world as highly competitive. He wants the best for his family. He puts in long hours and finds it difficult to switch off when he is at home. He is very demanding of his children regarding their academic standards and their sporting success. He rarely gets to take his children to their sport’s training and when he does he tends to sit in his car on his phone either working on emails or just zoning out on social media or games. He finds sitting and waiting for them a “waste of time”. When he started the program he was initially reluctant to focus on his own health and wellbeing as he believed it was irrelevant to his children’s wellbeing. He now interacts with other parents at training and feels a lot more relaxed when he talks to his children. He is able to leave work demands until after his children have gone to bed or he deals with it the next day at work, spending more quality time with his partner.
