My oldest son, Shawn (25), spoke with me again! This time we addressed the topic of letting children be creative and giving them freedom to explore and do things their way instead of insisting that they do things a certain way (mom’s way) – things that are supposed to be fun and free and creative.
Even when we have great ideas and imagine our kids loving them and doing such neat, fun projects or activities, if the kids don’t like them or want to do them, sometimes we moms have to let it go, and switch gears. We have to let them do their own thing and maybe they will come up with something even cuter or more creative than what the lesson planner came up with.
Whatever the results of the project, it’s almost certain that the experience will be better for your child than it would have been if you had forced him to do something he really didn’t like or want to do.
