To guide my children more than I direct them. To listen more and yell less. To always give them the benefit of the doubt. To speak like I want to be spoken to. To make more messes. To not worry about the mess. To validate their feelings. To remind myself that we're all learning as we go. To give them more freedom to make mistakes and the grace to try again. To lead by example. To take a step back. To indulge in more treats. To focus on today. To praise even the smallest progress. To not point out every mistake. To cook together more. To embrace the noise.
