Generations in Harmony

Maintaining healthy parent-child relationships beyond the chuppah

As a loving parent one of the greatest joys in life is to watch your children grow up and get married. But when a child leaves home for marriage, it can be a bittersweet time. Not only is your family unit changing – your relationship with your child changes too. Generations in Harmony addresses the topic of parenting marrieds from every angle.

As a young married, getting married is exciting, but also fraught with lots of change. During the first few years of marriage, your focus is on building a new family and adapting to the many demands of married life. Generations in Harmony will support you in understanding the changes you are going through, while keeping your connection with your family of origin healthy and strong.

This program addresses both parents and young marrieds.

I learned what was realistic to expect with a daughter-in-law and what I can do to allow a loving relationship to naturally emerge. My daughter-in-law, who had not previously opened up to me, began confiding in me once I learnt the tools on Generations in Harmony

My desire to spoil my couple and welcome them into the family caused a sense of entitlement and I didn’t know how to break the cycle.  The Generations in Harmony program taught me how to be true to myself without hurting our relationship. Now I know how to speak to them in an authentic and loving way and the relationship dynamics is so much simpler!

I’m married for a few years, and Generations in Harmony has been so enlightening and validating for me.  It put words to all the changes that I went thru when getting married, and helped me understand what was so overwhelming about the experience.
