TITLE: “Identifying and Correcting Parenting Styles that Damage a Student’s Development”
According to Dawn Bauer, the founder of The Family Hope Line and a Director of Admissions at Pacia Life, 92% of parents/families who learn simple but empowering communication with their young adult child end up with sustainable long-term successful outcomes. The success rate drops to 17% when parents feel the need to enable, “helicopter,” control their young adult child or the program from afar or try and cut the process short before a young adult has shown through his/her actions that they are ready.
According to Dawn, all too often parents are so anxious to reconnect with their young adult child that they unknowingly sabotage the progress. Learning to communicate in a way that honors the everyone involved and empowers them into the life-long parent/adult child partnership is the essential next step.
While the Family Hope Line and Pacia Life focus their efforts on all areas of one’s life including emotional regulation, mindfulness, physical health, relationships, daily executive functioning, networking, life coaching, spiritual roots, integrity, career development, etc., they also focus on each student being self-reliant–paying their own bills, managing money and being a responsible adult. Going even one step further, they set the stage for students to actively enroll in college classes, secure a job or apprenticeship, being involved in an entrepreneurial project or service project is a major focus and reason for being in the program.
