This summer has been all about mirroring and teaching social skills. My kids are way more social than i have ever been. With good reason. Haha.
We have been working on including others, working out disagreements and we have been having so much fun doing it!
We live in a community complex with tons of neighbors within arms reach. Some obvious goods and bads come with living so close to others however there are plenty of great things including other children. My three children get along well with others.
Here are some little tips and tricks to find teachable momments in your summer.
– water play can bring so much joy, sprinklers, and water tables are totally our thing this summer
– building forts, building any sort of structure with household materials and objects
– uno!! Board games like twister and chess
Anything you do with children can bring you the most joy as well as bring them great pleasure. Being outside is a bonus and staying grounded will help everyone feels their best.
