I recently did a consultation where the client had two children that she felt still needed a lot of directing even though they were girls and were 11 and 15. When I looked through the house, I noticed that there were MANY photographs of the girls as babies and small children, but none at the age they are now. The mom said it was because she could not get them to even think of posing for a picture now because whatever she wants the kids to do, they want the opposite.
Well, you know what I say, if the client is very resistant to it, or thinks it can’t be done, or even shouldn’t be done, perhaps that is the VERY thing that should be done. So, for the time being (at LEAST until she can get her fame and reputation gua up and running to get some respect within her own household, and overhauling the relationship gua which was her “totally over watered” office,) we took down all the pictures. the funny thing was, the girls didn’t seem to mind at all, but it was the mother that seemed upset that they were all gone.
So, was the problem really the kids being juvenile or the perception of the mother only being able to see her children as babies? What do you think?
