Today’s Daily Groove

THE DAILY GROOVE ~ by Scott Noelle

:: PREsponsive Parenting ::

Raising a child in harmony with human nature is
like driving to a distant city. The road isn’t
straight, but it’ll get you there.

For example, the road to independence as an adult
is via dependence as a baby. Going straight to
independence is a disaster.

You know you’ve veered off course when the ride
becomes suddenly rough, so you steer back to the
smooth road. Responsive parenting is like that:
answering a baby’s cries or a child’s aggression
with unconditional love and nurturing.

But when driving, you *rarely* veer off the road.
You stay *centered* in your lane for a smooth ride!
You stay *attuned* to the road, so you can adjust
course BEFORE you veer off.

In other words, you can PREspond!

Today, if you hit a rough spot with your child,
be REsponsive, but also consider how you might
have PREsponded, and refine your attunement

Pleasure-oriented PREsponsiveness can turn your
parenting journey into a JOYride! 🙂
