Okay, so most of us want a better relationship with our kid...even the ones with big, huge emotions that make us feel like crappy parents. Tell me I’m wrong...and mean it. If the relationship with your kid could use some improvement, you could keep doing what you’re doing (you know, they say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results…) or you could implement small changes to start the process gradually. It’s complete
Play. It’s a seemingly simple task but adults really struggle with letting go and just playing with their children. We often get all caught up in our own logic and forget the magic of just letting things play out, with little logic and interference from those with experience. Our small humans learn about their world through play. It’s pretty clear from about 0-7 but then a child’s play morphs into less actual playing and more games, competition, and exploration of boundaries.
