Re-connecting with Parents as a Young Adult

Fall 2023

As students transition into university, having a understanding, supportive and loving connection with parents can provide a sense of safety and allow one to cope more effectively when facing inevitable changes and stressors in the outside world.

In this talk, Ms Fiona Tsang, experienced counselor from THE COMPANIONS, shared tips on understanding and validating one's own emotions, identifying communication patterns, and communicating unmet expectations. Participants also learned how to appreciate and connect with their parents as young adults.

Fiona also facilitated guided meditation and shared her personal story on understanding oneself and one’s parents as individuals, beyond their roles as daughter/son or mother/father, allowing participants to reflect on their own expectation and learn new ways to connect with family and relationships as they move through different roles as a young adult.
