Ask Instead of Telling
When we begin to see life as a woven thread of experiences versus seeking the "good" and avoiding the "bad" we begin to see the value in exploration, failure, trying again, letting it be.
A big part of the fun is figuring it out for ourselves for the first time. When we jump in too soon to guide kids, tell them about the world, and teach them "how it is" we tend to unintentionally strip that moment they get to figure it out on their own - and all of the magic that comes with it.
How do we cultivate opportunities for this discovery and hit OUR brakes enough to make it happen? Here are some places to start.
