This has been on my heart and mind a lot.
Note to self:
remember the big picture
remember to connect before correcting
don’t look to the left or to the right
my family is unique
my kids’ needs are unique
be good stewards of the years that they’re in my household
Always remembering the examples of my friends @sgmontessorimoms and @mrsahgohgoh @ourmindfulpod @3mm.montessori to observe my own kids and support them where they are.
Also been reflecting on the importance of
If I hope my kids will grow in gentleness
I have to watch my tone
If I hope they’ll be more organised
I’ll have to work on keeping my kitchen and workspace neat
If I hope they’ll pick up Chinese books to read
I’ll have to make awesome books available and read them myself, and allow them to draw connections between books and real life
If I hope they’ll speak more Mandarin
I’ll slowly increase the time and places I speak Mandarin in, and improve my vocabulary
A chat with @followingjoy reminded me (wise words from her hubby), that it’s always the little things are the important things.
