Connecting with Children Authentically

I love playing and educating children because they give me hope. Children are curious, playful and fun. When I am with kids I feel light and filled with inspiration. I am in the moment and know that anything is possible. Children make me hopeful for the future yet present exactly in the here and now.

Here are some suggestions
  1. Get down to their level and look into their eyes and smile. Say something silly or unexpected.
  2. When teaching please keep your language simple and don't over-explain. Repeat back to them what you are hearing from them.
  3. Don't sweat the small stuff. Think to yourself what do I truly care about and leave your ego out of it.
  4. Focus on what you want your relationship to be down the road. Choose your thoughts and actions wisely.
  5. Be silly and have fun. Children will bring back your inner child. How great is that?
