THE DAILY GROOVE ~ by Scott Noelle
www.enjoyparenting.com/dailygroove NOTE: See the important message at the end of today's Groove...
Say "Yes" to *Anything* Your Child Wants!
Today, if you find yourself at odds with your child, try letting go of resistance and saying YES!
For example, if your toddler wants to play with a real chainsaw, you might say, "That sure looks like fun, doesn't it!? Here, let me fire that up for you!"
And don't burden your child with fear-based warnings; trust that s/he is capable of learning from experience. Remember that All Is Well in the big picture, even if someone loses a few body parts.
Most of all, decide to lighten up -- i.e., be enlightened -- and enjoy today in particular, which, in case you forgot, is . . .
April Fools Day! :P
AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM MY LAWYER:
Um... You got that the chainsaw
thing was a joke, right?
