Parenting Tip: Helping your child become more Observant

We teach children how to see, to observe, to watch, all the time. Then somewhere in this process, learning gets lost and left at whatever place they stopped with learning colors or putting names to items. Identification leads to an awareness of observation, a “what to think about” when making choices, which toy to play with or crayon to color with.

When children learn how to consciously observe the world around them, they will always have something to do… Be watching! This can show up in activities such as watching clouds, listening to sounds outside, watching how a car is fixed or a cake is baked and the watching will be especially absorbed when they get to help.

When the thoughts and actions that we take for granted are brought in to our awareness with a why question, they take on a new form, a texture, and become a substance that is observable and therefore moveable!

And you thought you’d had enough of why questions from your two-year-old! Just wait until you reacquaint your self with the magic of Why.

Remember, parenting begins from the inside out… and getting to know your energy begins now!
