So often we are told how we should and shouldn’t be with kids, what is the right way of doing things, the correct approach, the wrong things you should never say, and the results all of this will bring. And a lot of this information can be incredibly useful, both for the adults and the kids. But how often does it leave the adults feeling like yet again, they have not done a good enough job? Or they are failing as parents/teachers? Or that this may be yet another technique that kind of works a few times, but doesn’t create lasting change?
I often wonder what it would be like if the adults in these situations were empowered to know that they don’t always have to be the one coming up with the answers. What would it be like if you had the techniques that allowed you and the child to navigate all kinds of situations with ease? This sounds like an ideal scenario, right? And perhaps one that is too easy. Well, what if ease and joy could be a huge part of your interaction with kids on every level from the most ‘difficult’ to the most easy moments.
Here are 5 new ideas to create more ease with the kids in your life.
The beauty of these techniques is that you can’t get them wrong. What you can gain is increased awareness that allows the child and your connection with them to grow.
How does it get any better than that?
