Get down on the floor. Play dragon fights on the bed. Invite mess.

Play in the waves. Get wet. Make mud. Be enthusiastic.

Stay up late. Watch movies. Eat popcorn. Name stars.

Skip school. Chase sunrises. Ditch schedules.

Make forts. Be silly. Fake accents.

Paint faces (yours too!). Dress up. Participate, don't spectate.

Dance. Sing. Turn the music up louder (and louder).

Bake treats. Go outside. Hike...carry...hike.

Blur the lines. Break the rules.

Kiss. Cuddle. Nap together.

Share. Grow. Immerse.

Pause. Laugh. Breathe.

I don’t think anyone enjoys behaving badly.

Children do not behave “badly” because they want to. Children behave how they feel.

And if nobody helps untangle those big feelings they keep acting them out. In an instinctive bid for help ~> connection.

I believe children want to progress. If they aren't, it's because they cant. YET.

The antidote to behavior such as
”pulling away”, ”clinging” and “acting out” is helping children to feel understood, connected, and safe.

What helps children progress is what helps you and me.

We all need to FEEL safe, understood, seen, heard, cared for, and connected.

It's healthy and normal for children to be cooperative when they feel safe, connected, and regulated, and it's normal for children to be uncooperative when they feel unsafe, disconnected, and dysregulated.

However, when a child has to be ”good” at all times to ensure their safety or secure parental regulation, acceptance, and connection, that is not healthy.

The more we learn to understand our feelings and fulfill our needs, the more we understand the feelings and needs of our children and help them to understand their feelings and fulfill their needs, so they understand the feelings and needs of others.
