All we ever want is to be together as a family, to laugh, play, and enjoy our lives as a little team.
But there is so much in the modern world that pulls us in different directions–work, money, geography, school, health, digital technology, media.
How do we as parents respond?
Lower the bar–start small, take your time, and build on what works (to borrow from permaculture).
Be like a slug–slow and steady wins the race.
Gather a few hours on a Sunday afternoon, perhaps with no plan other than to be together. Experiment. See what works. Follow your gut.
Make sure everyone’s voice is heard and listened to. Create something new together. Honor the unexpected, make room for surprises.
Head into the woods for breakfast, with a picknick basket full of treats. Follow your funny-bone. Let joy and playfulness guide you.
How was that? What would you like to do next time?
