Is it ever right to CRY in front of your KIDS?

Friday, 22 May

Sometimes it's all too much. And when that wave of emotion crashes over you, it's only human to cry. Some people find crying cathartic, and some find it shameful. Whatever your opinion, crying is something that happens to us all. As a parent you want to protect your kids, so should you cry infront of them? Is your crying damaging for them, or a lesson in emotional growth? And what in what context is crying in front of your children appropriate? How do you explain crying to them? Nadia and Mark confront a difficult issue for all parents, and discuss whether we can cry infront of our children. They recount times they have come to tears and how they have explained their feelings to their kids. And they hear from the teens about their experience of witnessing their parents crying. Hear this and much more in this episode of Confessions Of A Modern Parent. And they take questions and suggestions from listeners on their experiences in parenting roles.
