    6. Meeting Parents and Children When I meet a family, I want to bring all of my awareness into the moment. I want to use my senses to see what I can see, hear what I can hear, and feel what I can feel. How do we greet each other? How do the parents and children seem to feeling in relation to this new experience? How do they sit with me and with each other? Who is most open to change?
