Parenting can feel like a chore somedays or for some, many days, especially if the schedule is so jam packed you barely have a moment to breathe. There are many pressures on parents, one of the ways to ease the pressure is find deeper ways to connect with our child(ren) so there is less repeating 20 times for your child(ren) to brush their teeth, or to get ready at the front door so you are not late for school. Deeper connection allows us to utilize the energy we have in more meaningful ways. For some they may need to pare down the schedule to have more time in order to find time to connect more deeply. When we connect more deeply we can delight in our children more. Delighting in ways that we truly enjoy our child's presence and their special uniqueness while being so connected in the moment. Delight allows our children to flourish developmentally, physically, and emotionally.
