Cartoon of a business man and a guy dressed in silly clothes. The silly guy says, “You really need to get in touch with your inner child!”
If you’re a parent or teacher, It can be tempting to lay down the law and become intolerant of childlike behavior. After all, there is agenda and we must stick with it!
Yes, I ‘m ashamed to say I have fallen into that trap more than once.
But remember there is a difference between childish and childlike behavior. Childlike behavior is the curiosity and fun we all love. We need to try new things and discover the world. If we squelch that part, we squelch learning.
Let your inner child show up with your kids every once in a while. And if you know where to find a propellor-beanie hat, let me know!
