Parenting Tip - What are you teaching?


Here is a great article that every parent needs to read.  The whole article is here.  The following is  an  excerpt:

"I am an occupational therapist with 10 years of experience working with children, parents, and teachers...I have seen and continue to see a decline in kids’ social, emotional, academic functioning, as well as a sharp increase in learning disabilities and other diagnoses.  
        Here is why…"
 The author, Victoria Prooday, then goes on to explain what we are doing to our children when we let them use too much technology, don't let them wait for things they want, don't say NO to our children, don't let them get bored and let them constantly be entertained.

Parents, what are you teaching your children, either by your intentional teaching or by the absence of teaching?

Let your children be bored, let them play, play, play.  Tell them no.  YOU be the parent, not them.

Thanks for reading,
Cathy
