How You See It Matters

"The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper."
-W.B. Yeats

We project a lot onto our children about how we perceive things in this world; the way we behave, the way something tastes, how things feel to us, what is or isn't beautiful, scary, or fun.

We unintentionally cloud their view of things sometimes before they have a chance to focus and make a decision for themselves about it.

Teaching children about the world is not always black and white.  When they encounter something new, taking a step back and observing them taking it in will tell you a lot about what they see.

You may be surprised at how children will react...

What you see is neither right nor wrong, but how you see these things matters because it's what you are encouraging them to see.  

Are your kids aware of your perceptions?
