Take a Break
Every once in awhile take a break from the routine and be free to explore the wonderful world around you. It is amazing the questions and discussions that can take place while out on a walk or just at the mention of a topic. There are so many opportunities for children to learn without their heads being stuck in a book or glued to the computer.
As their first teacher, how much do have to teach your child just through what you have learned about the world and life. Share your experiences, thoughts and feelings with your child/children. This leaves room for them to ask questions, get to know you better and most of all learn something new. Yes, little ones can take part and benefit also you will just have to think more on their level such as blowing dandelions can lead to a discussion on where those seeds go and the fact that they are seeds.
Life is always walking up to us and saying, "Come on in, the living's fine," and what do we do? Back off and take its picture. ~Russell Baker
