Nurturing your child’s strength, and allowing them space to grow

2022

2020

Looking back over the past 11 years, I’m so thankful that we have leaned into, encouraged, and nurtured creativity.

Whether it be playing in boxes, writing a book, creating a treasure map, or a board game- these kids know how to entertain themselves when they are bored.

One of my favorite phrases that I’ve adopted is: “It’s not my job to entertain you”.

When the “I’m bored” sets in, or the “I don’t wanna…” get murmured, or technology gets taken away…it doesn’t take long, and these kids are creating something.

In my opinion, one of the most powerful aspects of parenting is knowing your strengths and weaknesses, and matching that with nurturing your child’s strengths and areas of growth.

What aspect of parenting are you most proud of, in your family?
