My children are teaching me so much that the learning process is 2-way.  I thought I would share 4 observations with you:

 

  1. Rain or shine my daughter doesn’t care whether it’s raining or sunny she wants to go outside to play.  We can often put barriers up on getting things done; like the weather.  Each barrier is as an opportunity, for example, a rainy day is the possibility to go outside and splash in wellies.
  2. No cap on creativity; my kids like to play different animals, and I join in.  We walk like dinosaurs, jump like frogs and slither like snakes.  It keeps me incredibly fit!   However, it does more than that I have to think how each animal moves and sound.  The ability to be anything is something we should keep doing past childhood.  The mind-set to explore with no cap on creativity.
  3. Do what they love.  At the moment that is making ice cream in the play dough machine, colouring, reading, role-playing animals and cooking with mummy.  They are always smiling and seem to be progressing well.  We should do what we love in life.
  4. Spread enthusiasm.  My daughter wants to cook, cook and cook.  I am weary that she sees me role modelling, but she also sees me reading and writing essays for my Doctorate so there is a balance.  What is evident is that we have the ability to spread enthusiasm and passion.
