What insights did we discover in our most recent Happy Hour?
June Happy Hour
Theme: Summer Adventures
So many NATURAL learning opportunities occur within these adventures, these experiences ... things flow easier when we're not trying to make one thing happen.
Don't sweat the small stuff...everything is small stuff.
See that every experience has VALUE.
I try to be positive even if things change or something goes wrong. I think its important to be okay with changes.
Brainstorm WITH him as to what can help in the situation.
Check in often as words may not always reflect what's inside.
EXPOSE your kid to everything and let them decide what their limits are.
1st version usually SUCKS. 2nd version more deeply ENCODES. 3rd time could be the CHARM! So trying things three times can be very useful!
Telling us ahead of time about where we are going and frontloading all the possible scenarios and challenges would be great.
I used to really stress over whether I was meeting their individual needs and spending enough time with both of them ... but I realized stressing about it really affected the quality of the time I was spending with them. When I let go of the pressure I was putting on myself... that's when things really started to just FLOW and happen ORGANICALLY.
It is all one big experiment!
