Description

Topic: Protecting Your Edges

Description: Boundaries, Breaks, and Adult Time-outs

As parents the hardest thing to prioritize is ourselves. This is even harder for parents of children from hard places because the need-list grows longer every day and our needs are the first things to be put off or postponed until a "later" that never arrives. In this workshop, you will explore your "edges" those expectations, limits, and internal boundaries that exist in all of us and respect your limits, feeling you to meet your child's needs from a place of strength.

Speaker Bio: Pam Paris is the founder and executive director of Connections Homes and organization birthed out of her personal story as a mom to eight daughters (all currently between the ages of 22-26)- one birth daughter and seven adopted daughters from various circumstances (foster care, aging out of foster care, adoption disruption, trafficking, and homelessness). She has more than 10 years of experience in foster care, trauma-informed care, and crisis parenting. She is also the author if three devotional-style books used worldwide as a standard for helping families prepare for foster care and adoption (Ready or Not, released in 2012), to "stay in the game" when they are tired and worn out (Battle-Weary Parents, released in 2015), and to understand the importance of the gift they can be in a child's life who has no one (The Gift, released in 2018). Pam is a wife of 27 years to her high school sweetheart, Steve. They are the parents and grandparents of eight young adult daughters, three sons-in-laws, and four grandchildren. They live in a small 12-acre farm just outside of Atlanta where all of their free time is spent with animals, in gardens, and around the firepit.
