I came across this blog post the other day and immediately wanted to share it with every parent I know. Here's a little sneak peak of The Hands Free Mama as she "lets go...to grasp what really matters."
The next time you feel the need to guide, instruct, or criticize after a ball game, performance, or extracurricular activity, instead consider six simple words: “I love to watch you play.”
Furthermore, if you become emotional simply by watching someone you love in action, consider these six words, “I love to watch you _______.“
In some cases, less is more.
Less can be exactly what they need to hear. No pressure … just love, pure and simple.
