Empowering Family Members for Life

Emaww.com Emotion Matter Podcast Kerry Alison Wekelo Empowering Family Members


Empowering family members can help them better understand and adapt to the way of life. Through improving their emotional awareness, we make our family members more prepared for everything they need to face, and our guest, Kerry Alison Wekelo is here to help you with that. 

Q1-02:32: You have a lot of interests in your life and you’re involved in a number of activities. Is there any of these activities that you would like to maybe give us a little bit more insight on that you are particularly proud of?

Q2-03:54: How does the cube actually look like? Is it the size of a stress ball? So, the child can just literally hold it in a hand and squeeze it?

Q3-07:25: When you give these or when somebody buys these cubes from you, does it come with an instruction book?

Q4-10:23: Can you give us the names of each one or what their objective might be?

Q5-13:18: You mentioned one of your books which was “If it doesn’t grow – say no”, and then you have another book as well called “Audrey’s journey” or is that a series? Can you explain that one a little bit more for us?

Q6-14:45: Do you think that not being able to love oneself is the route to a lot of adult issues?

Q7-16:18: What kind of advice can you give adults and being able to number one identify that maybe that is at the root of some of our issues that we don’t love ourselves though there is a sense of sometimes being what we loving oneself and being overconfident? 

Q8-18:07: Give me an example of something that somebody might do for themselves and an example that most people might turn to and something that would be for themselves.

Q9-20:33: What do you think makes parents give away so much for their children? What is it? Is it a natural instinct? Is it rooted in just the pure love? What is it that makes us want to do so much for kids? What do you think helps parents understand why we do what we do for our kid so we don’t think of it as an obligation?

Q10-23:12: How do you get in human resources, for example? How do you help someone at their job that doesn’t feel like they’re in the present?

Q11-30:08: In your workplace, what visually would somebody see aside from the cubes on people’s desks? What would they visually see to determine that this is a culturally different atmosphere? Is there anything you know how this involves acceptor? Is there anything that would be visually different if I were to come and take a walk through?

Q12-38:37: How your children are? How did this set up their future? Where their direction to their future go? How does someone who is so rooted in quite the opposite things that you were ten years ago if they don’t have the impetus to pick up a book about yoga or they’re not into it? How do they begin to work through that? Do they go to someone like you to help them and coach them? Is this something that you help people do or do you know some other recommendation where they could kind of start this journey?

Q12-47:17: Question from a listener (Nick, Phoenix): How does a parent deal with the fear of doing something for their children that will not turn out well in terms of education?

Q12-49:44: Tell us what’s happening for you in the future? What can we expect from you in the future?

    I really enjoyed this podcast. I liked what Mrs. Wekelo was saying about channeling emotions. I agree that some people don’t allow themselves to feel any emotion so they don’t know how to express themselves. Some don’t know how to feel happy, angry, sad, love, etc. I also agree that this is the root of some adult issues. Awesome podcast!
