Karen February 2, 2011 at 7:13 am The best way to parent and rewarding for all. Doll Clothes Gal Pal February 2, 2011 at 7:14 am So cute! Happy WW! The Kikay Girl February 2, 2011 at 7:14 am What an angel. Thanks for sharing! 🙂 Pam ccmouse February 2, 2011 at 7:42 am I think just taking the time to slow down to actually talk and listen to them. Rachael RachaelNevins February 2, 2011 at 7:54 am It looks like this moment: the Critter eating breakfast while sitting on my lap, because he asked to, and why not? Lauren Hobo_Mama February 2, 2011 at 4:45 pm I love those moments. Why not, indeed! Abbie farmdaughter February 2, 2011 at 8:44 am Thanks so much for using my photo! I love all the other pictures, too. Stacy Uncorked RandomCoolChick February 2, 2011 at 9:04 am Those are all excellent examples of responding with sensitivity! 🙂 Momma Jorje February 2, 2011 at 9:11 am I probably could have submitted a photo, but I couldn’t seem to think outside the box on how such a thing would be displayed in a photo. These are all wonderful! I love the bit about the baby with the camera. While things can be expensive, I think people are too protective of “stuff” from kids sometimes. The horse photo, too… physically supporting in the photo and talking about emotional support – wonderful example! Lauren Hobo_Mama February 2, 2011 at 4:48 pm I was really impressed with what people came up with. You’ll notice I didn’t submit one, either. 🙂 We get a lot of comments that we let our son use our cameras and phones and computers, and I admit it is a little challenging when he wants to use someone else’s who doesn’t want him to. For me, it’s too much negative energy to refuse to let him play with “our” toys, and a good way for him to learn how to work these things. I love that horse photo, too! Momma Jorje February 6, 2011 at 9:04 pm I used to see baby’s playing with their parents’ fancy phones and was kind of shocked myself. But guess what? We do it, too. In fact, all of our old cell phones are in the toy box! I even have the charging cable for one and recharge it on occasion. She mostly just likes to make the phones light up, though the first time she accidentally called someone on Daddy’s phone she called ME! I was at work, imagine my surprise!! Dee @ Start Dreaming wishfulme February 2, 2011 at 9:12 am I love the picture of the baby! Those EYES! Beautiful! As for responding to our children, when angry I have to remember to take a breath, count to 10 and than respond. Usually deal with the situation at hand much better with a clear head. Take care! Dee Melissa (MamaWhimsy) February 2, 2011 at 9:38 am I love these. Wonderful examples! Michelle @ The Parent Vortex TheParentVortex February 2, 2011 at 10:46 am Responding with sensitivity, for me, means working to become more aware of when I’m feeling spread too thin or impatient. Most of the time responding sensitively is a joy, but when I’m not feeling great it takes a big effort to choose a kind thing to say instead of a cranky one. It’s a journey! Lauren Hobo_Mama February 2, 2011 at 4:49 pm I totally hear you! I guess we need to respond sensitively to ourselves, too, and fill our own physical & emotional needs as well. katie m February 9, 2011 at 5:23 pm I love these personal stories!
