About Improv Parenting

Want to know more about some essential elements of improv parenting? See my guest post over at Mindfulness Mama.

Cheat sheet:

Say yes, and more than you might otherwise. Collaborate with your child even when it feels uncomfortable, see where it takes you.

Be spontaneous (don't fear mistakes). Trust yourself to get there (location, teaching a value, reinforcing a rule, etc.) even if the path is roundabout.

Drop the agenda (stop controlling or trying to teach). Your kids will learn, I promise.
