First, I mean for you to stop and actually listen to what she is saying, give every question and statement full attention to the extent of your ability. There will always be something that we can distract ourselves with, something that feels like it is more pressing, but if we make that choice then we are also making the choice to communicate to our child or children that there is always something more important than them! If you have to, put whatever it is that you are doing away, the computer, the dishes, the laundry, and give them 100% in that moment. Look them in the eyes, see their sweet, trusting face, and really, really hear them.
So that's my Wildschooling Wisdom for Wednesday. Share yours with us, and a link to your blog or site so others can find you! Anything to do with nature-based parenting and homeschooling will work!!! I can't wait to see what you have to say.
