Our school sends home worksheets for parents to do with their children to help teach social skills. The exercises cover things like respectfulness, bullying, how to deal with high emotions as well a variety of safety concerns.
Clara, my tree climbing, bruise sporting, “Watch this mom!” yelling, master of exciting games like slingshot-ing yourself down a staircase with an old therapy band, brought me her homework.
I read aloud the first question.
“What do you need to do to stay safe?”
And Clara, in a voice that heard far too many rules at school in the first day alone, answered,
I’m not worried.
School rules or not, this girl doesn’t do boring!
perfect! And I always love your perspective too.
She’s an awesome kid and she sure marches to the beat of her own drum! 🙂
Good for her.
Oh, she’s just fabulous.
I think so too! 🙂
That is exactly what my daughter would say. Too funny.
I never am sure what she’ll say but I’m almost always amused by it!
Helmet. Consider a helmet.
The tricky part is known when she needs it. I didn’t know stairs were so dangerous until the thump…thump… thump… turned into thumpthumpthumpthumpthump. Crazy girl!
Such a cutie. Yeah playing it safe is a bit boring…. funny how our perspectives change though as we age and don’t heal as fast. LOL
I’ve noticed the ground has gotten harder as I’ve gotten older…
I wish I could “like” this post more than once…like a gazillion times. That is just fantastic. 😀
I think you just did! 🙂
