YOUNG ADULTS GROW UP – AND AWAY

And parents may need consideration too

 
Four years ago Ralph Strzałkowski looked back on when he left home, got a career, made his own independent life – 
I guess you never stop being the parent of a cerebral palsy child, no matter how old the 'child' may be...
...my new lease on life, as exciting as it is for me, took something from my parents – that I never thought about to a greater degree. I was happy to get started- they were letting go of something, and miss it.
Read what Ralph wrote on this, in full, at:

A truly holistic conductive approach to young (and not so young) adults has also to include conscious consideration of this dynamic, among the others, across the life span, and it is also an essential component of a comprehensive theoretical position on conductive upbringing and pedagogy.
For a tiny bit of a discussion, see:

And every stage in any lifelong conductive involvement, never, never forget the fundamental human-developmental principle of reciprocity.
