1) General

Begin by giving yourself permission to build play into your daily life. Doing it for yourself, you’ll feel yourself being your very own best ally. That spills over: You’ll want to learn even more about what fills your child’s spirit, what sets your child up to be able to make lemonade out of lemons.

At one point, I asked one of our sons – “Do you stir up the pot here for entertainment?” “Of course – what else?” was his answer. With a ‘you son-of-a-gun inner-laugh’, and recognition of his just trying to meet his own needs, I responded: “You know what – I’m sure you can find ways to have as much fun without making everyone else here miserable.” Feeling understood and accepted, he did. I know I had given myself some form of play that day.
