July 2015 / April 2018
I have posted this one before, but now I both reduced the background noise and added captions. I have also gained enough insight about children’s brain development to (begin to) appreciate the value and significance of strait-up, plain-old, interpersonal conversation with a caring adult.
Mind you, I did not know this at the time, nor do I practice this concept nearly enough. As anyone who knows me can tell you, I hardly ever sit still (except when I’m behind the computer like this, or slumped on the couch in late night defeat).
I write it here as a reminder to myself:
Our attention is all they seek.
Giving it to them -undivided- is the greatest gift we can bestow.
