Father of 3. Looking to connect with and follow those who treat kids like people. #unschooling #buildtrust #constantactsofkindness #kidsarepeople
I generally follow this simple precept: Don't ask children questions you already know the answer to.
I think it stops me from talking too much around my kids. I feel I can get tuned out if I talk too much.
“A lot of parenting and teaching techniques are socially approved bullying...”
Home should be where we talk about ALL of the things, instead of none of the things.
Create a home where your kids can open up about anything and they‘ll know you won’t dismiss them or shut them down. #366KKtips

Not talking. Not commanding. Not punishing.
How can I expect my children to think through the consequences of their actions if I don’t take the time to articulate the consequences of mine?
Certainly the tone of voice I use around them has consequences, right?
