It takes time for kids to learn to look up and see the needs of those around them, including their parents and siblings. They're very naturally attuned to their own needs, but need to be shown how to "see a need, meet a need" for others. One of the best ways to teach them this is to model it out loud. Be intentional to point out the needs of others around you - narrating aloud the things you might naturally do in silence. In a waiting area or lobby, I have taught my boys to only take a seat if there is not an adult standing and waiting. They should take notice if "elders" enter, and quickly offer their seats. While grocery shopping, I point out, "See that woman struggling to reach the top shelf? Is there a way we could help her?".... "See that older man loading those heavy fertilizer bags into his truck. Is there a way we could help him?"... "See that pregnant woman putting her groceries away? Is there a way we could help her?"... When they were younger, I'd whisper the the words they could use, "Excuse me, may I return that shopping cart for you?" This trains them to pay attention to the world around them and look for ways to be helpers. It is a practice that not only helps them build confidence speaking to strangers, but translates to empathy and a spirit of teamwork in the workplace and beyond. The strongest teams - at work, in sports, and in families - are those whose members are willing to bear one another's burdens. I often have to voice my needs to my kids and ask how they could help. I wish they'd notice on their own, but that takes time. Soon, they won't need our prompting. It will become habit. When one of your kids helps to meet a need, ask them how it feels. That intrinsic feeling of satisfaction and service will motivate them to do it much more often on their own. #HRmomCourtesy of https://bit.ly/2GA04Wi

You walk into the playroom and see pompoms and toys strewn all over the floor. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ Your first reaction? ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ 😡🤯😱 ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ “Clean up the room NOWWWWWW!!!!” ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ Do you think your child will obediently clean up the pompoms right away? ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ Sorry babe, unlikely. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ Instead, you’ll have to deal with the power struggle that comes almost immediately 🌪 ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ 💡 But what if you speak to their emotional brain instead: ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ “WOW I see a lot of pompoms on the floor. You guys are having fun!” ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ Your child then feels connected and there’s a higher probability that they will cooperate and clean up! ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ 〰️ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ This was our first playroom and I remembered vividly how the kids were playing hockey with a long wooden spoon and the pompoms, making “rain” by scooping pom poms into cups and pouring them out 🌧 ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ They had a whale of a time, imagining, playing, laughing as they turned the room into a pom pom sensory bin 😭 ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ I know that some of us have very low tolerance for mess, but we have kids, don’t we? How can it fun if there’s no mess! 😆 ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ Of course, I am not saying that its ok for the kids to create a mess and leave. More importantly, we want to inculcate a sense of responsibility in the kids. After the “rain”, I cleaned up the room together with the kids. No tears, no power struggles 💪🏻 ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ In situations like that, I ask myself what is more important: a messy room or the relationship with my child? I choose the latter ♥️ #olpn_parenting I’m curious, what would you say when you walk into the room filled with pompoms (or even LEGO) on the floor??! 😱Courtesy of https://bit.ly/2E46SKH
