This post comes by request after Tikeetha read a post on perception determining your reality. She asked for tips on shaping your child’s perception when they tend to focus more on the negative than the positive. This is something adults and children alike struggle with. If children can be taught how to deal with this from an early age, it will be something that can serve them well as they grow. I’m going to share my personal practice I’ve used to train my brain to pay attention to the positive things. These tips will be a combination of what you can do as the parent in addition to what you can teach your child.

For instance, my girls and I read The Boxcar Children before they go to bed. We were reading a chapter about the kids needing to write but they didn’t have a pen to write with. I asked my daughter what they could use instead of a pen given their circumstances. Continue reading “Child-lead Memory-making Learning”

I’ve seen myself grow and go through changes as a parent. When I first became a mom, I thought my role as a parent was one of a dictator. I made all decisions, set all of the rules, and had to demand compliance no matter what. Luckily, a few years into parenting right when I actually had to start putting things into action, I discovered Continue reading “Travel Agent vs Tour Guide Parenting”
