Everyone is stressed. Everyone needs more sleep. Everyone is going faster, stronger, better, or harder than you are. We strive to write everything down, record everything we say, document every movement. We watch concerts and games through the video camera rather than enjoying it in the moment.
If you don’t subscribe to this attitude, well then you are clearly not doing it right.
At the 6th grade PAL meeting this week, parents offered advice:
- Be present, remain calm
- Pause and watch the magic of this stage – step back and looks for connections
- Get your rest, you never know when life will be challenging and you will need patience, etc.
- Don’t rush – take your time
- Be the best you can be
- Be a witness to this amazing time of transformation in your kids
