It’s easy with the daily emails from kid’s teachers or caregivers to start feeling overwhelmed with all that you are not doing. Stop.
Today’s hack is to make a list about what really matters in their lives right now. The list should be pretty simple. For example, for my kids, it’s about them feeling loved and secure and fostering their curiosity and creativity. I could care less about traditional learning.
Most days look like them playing for hours with minimal ‘school’ work. We’ve stopped doing the endless worksheets. They’re building with legos, pillow forts or practicing magic shows.
So today, make your list. What truly matters right now. Then give yourself permission to let go of the rest.
