Ok, everybody remain calm. This is not an emergency. It is just a meme. Remember that we have lots of different Zen readers with different perspectives, each at different stages of their own professional development. Feel free to take a deep breath before you comment. 💖

A child's neurological system is naturally designed to seek out the sensory input it needs at any given point in time. So if a child is spinning in circles, it is because they need this input. If they are jumping off a rock (over and over again!) -- it is because they need this input.

Resist the urge to cry out, "be careful" or "get down from there!"

When we continue to prevent children from moving in the ways they were intended to move, then WE become the barrier to healthy child development.

(Each number in the sequence is the sum of the previous two numbers.)
