“Give your kids credit for using their brains all the time… and give yourself credit for setting up this environment for them to just learn.”
Do you have a kid who loves reading the coupons? Or a kid who could spend all day building worlds out of LEGOs, in Minecraft, or through imaginative play and storytelling? Maybe you’ve got a kid working to perfect a magic trick or a recipe or a makeup technique.
It might not always look like traditional, tangible, academic work. But our kids really are learning all the time.
All we have to do is notice.
