Less is More

So often I feel like I have to always be engaged with my children 24/7.  Yesterday as I was folding laundry, each one of my children was totally engaged with their own play, one with a train set, one with a stuffed animal and the other with a doll house.  The imagination and direction of the play was totally up to them which I have to believe is very freeing to them.  I know that I like to have periods of time when no one is dictating how I spend it...I am coming to understand that my children do as well!

  1. Good one on Productive Parenting - it helps a lot!

    We clearly share similar parenting experiences and views.
    I've been reading one that I'm hooked on - http://todayscliche.com/.
    I have a feeling you'd get a lot out of it.

    Incredible job on your blog; keep it up.

    Thanks,
    Amy
