Connecting with your child without opening your mouth

Connecting with your child without opening your mouth

 

One of my favourite early pictures of my son is this one.

Our kids come in stereo surround sound and our homes can often be full of sound and activity.

We don’t have to connect with our children only through sound. Using non verbal communication is powerful, useful and comforting in many situations.

There’s an affiliate link in this post.

It rescues us when we have a little voice.  When we need to share privately but in public. When we need to be quiet but communicate from a distance. When we need some quiet and stillness. When we need a change of mood. When we need a focus change.

Today I’m exploring 9 ways we can communicate with our children without opening our mouth.

Exploring the Art of Living Intentionally in a Chaotic World with Tsh

Exploring the art of living intentionally

 

My guest today is a traveller so it’s hard to say where she’ll be when you listen to the show. When we recorded the show Tsh author and blogger of The Art of Simple.net was living with her family in Oregon. As the show is published I believe the whole family are travelling around the world and are in Africa.When you listen- who knows?  How cool is that!

We’re not talking about her worldwide travel with a family- yet! Instead we’re talking about being intentional whether we’re on the road travelling or at home.

Our conversation is inspired by her book: Notes from a blue bike.

The things we talk about really impact our family atmosphere.

 

During the interview Tsh shares

  • how she creates boundaries around time online?
  • how to maintain friendships around intentional living when you’re living in different places?
  • the value of routines when you travel
  • of the surprises about raising her children overseas?
  • examples about the way you play after living somewhere else?
  • Some excellent advice when you’ve had this excellent idea and how you bring it home to your loved ones and bring it up!
  • when to act after you’ve had aha moments. Do you wait or do you move quickly?
  •  a few things she’s done to put family first that’s strengthened her marriage and relationship with her husband.

Setting up the home as a learning environment for young boys

Setting up the home as a learning environment for young boys

Setting up our home for learning. We gather a few things for the kids but are they the right things? During this show we talk about setting up our home for learning for boys.  Since boys and girls are different there are some environments that support and help a boy learn more than others.

This show is from a mother of all boys perspective from aged 11 and younger. There will be lots of cross overs with girl and boy/girl families. As we all things simple parenting and simple play take what works for your family and run with it, discard those that don’t fit. We know our children and if you find something here that works for your family, boy or girl, go for it!  I’m sharing practical activities and ideas and our experiences.
