See beyond the mess.

PAUSE & consider 💖

See beyond the mess!
See beyond the painted hands!
See beyond the splodged & painted vest!

Look instead, at her intent, look at her concentration!
Look at her engagement & well being.
Look at her carefully working things out.
Look at her exploring textures and nature.

Look at her deep involvement & critical thinking!
Look at the skills & competency

Look at this moment & look at HER!

Instantaneously without thinking this entire magical opportunity for learning could immediately STOP, VANISH, halted & be LOST!

The words we speak can have a catastrophic impact on a child’s willingness to engage & continue. Their desire to carry on once the FLOW has been interrupted.

“Come put an apron on please!”

WHY?
Do we see the mess before we truly SEE the CHILD
