Loving others means accepting them for who they are April 8, 2016 – Posted in: Advice, Relationships

I was recently approached by a father who wanted me to work with his daughter so that she could become the focussed, academic, A* student he knew she could be.

I have three daughters aged 11, 8 and 6. They are my pride and joy. They are also darned hard work! Last night, the eldest two were stressed. One was worrying about something at school, the other couldn’t get to sleep. In a flash moment of clarity I decided to teach them some basic mindfulness.
