Put the Kids in Charge

Written by Andrea Hill on . Posted in Reflections

I just took four days to experience R&R at the discretion of an 8-yr-old. To guide, not control; offer suggestions, then go with the flow; (oh, & drive). It was all about parks, pools, zoos, snacking not dining, loooong walks, holding hands, staying up late & watching movies while eating candy in bed, & non-stop talking. If being truly present is so rewarding, why is it so rare? I am claiming more of it. With my whole family.
