Tips We Learned

Are you tired of parenting in the fast lane of today? A busy schedule of educational activities with little free time was the norm for many parents who wanted to raise intelligent, motivated kids. However, a young child’s neurological systems, sense of security, and level of curiosity about their continuously changing surroundings are best supported by the lovely pace of slowness. Slow is the natural pace of a young child.

As always, balance is the key. Let go a little, start slow and keep it simple to find the right fit for your family. Here are Tips to Take the Pressure Off with Slow Parenting:

  • Encourage open-ended play
  • Mellow yourself
  • Don’t overdo the “debrief”
