Our responses to the conversation our children bring can truly provide them the space and direction to be critically thinking humans or limit them to follow responses they've been taught. I'd prefer the former! I'd rather our children gain the confidence in their own ability to handle social interactions than just follow an adult's instruction.
Today I read a post that walks us through how we can support our children conversationally in evaluating their own social experiences. Blogger "Parenting From Scratch" writes a post To Help Kids Process Emotions, Ask, "How Was That?". Please read it.
Thanks Michelle, at Busy Bee Preschool for sharing this today!
