After you’ve given your child the resources, it can become very tempting to control or manage how they use them. Try as much as possible to resist this urge so that they can build the innate desire to be creative. Too much interference can hinder independent thinking, which might affect the quality of their creative process. So next time you’re itching to hover, decide against it in the best interest of your little ones.
The back-to-school season is equal parts tiring and fun. There’s so much to do, but through it, all is the exciting buzz of anticipation for the school year ahead. The younger your children are, the more opportunities there are to create back-to-school traditions that will make the end of August something to look forward to rather than panic about. By planning as much as possible, you can make the transition enjoyable rather than stressful.
