Always learning

Learning just happens.

No need to control it. But it's helpful to provide as rich an environment as you can afford, and then get the hell out of the way. Restriction is part of control. I am amazed and relieved that control is not part of my parenting journey. We are all happy and connected as a result. Honest relationships are what's important to us in our family. Partnering with children and treating them as equal family members with real feelings, valid desires and rights. Radical. (How sad it is radical and not mainstream...)
