You know that calm and cool Dad you see at the meetings for his son?
The one who rarely gets upset? Yeah. him.
That is me. I am anything but calm. In fact most of the time, I am so rigid with stress that I could be a string on a violin. A damn big string on a violin.
How do I change that?
See, I would rather get up and speak in front of hundreds of people than sit in that room and have a meeting about my son. It isn’t that I don’t love him or want to fight for him, it is just that overtime, I have learned that most meetings for David don’t go well, and I need to be on-guard.
It is sad really that my early meetings for David have caused me to automatically feel like this. Is this a, what do they call it, psychosomatic response? Or physiological? Either way it sucks.
What ways do you combat meeting stress when it comes to your child? Leave an answer in the comments and I will compile a list.
