Sir Ken Robinson
This pandemic has taken a lot from humanity, it also has changed the way we think and feel about life, but in the middle of all the sorrow, ironically, life has sprung, new ideas have emerged and I have learned a great deal.
Another gift I have accepted, is this new self awareness of my own limitations, and how great it is to say “NO,” how great it is to say “I NEED HELP,” and how great it is to say “IT DOESN’T NEED TO BE PERFECT.” Giving myself permission to fail, and start again without the drama, has been a relief. When I freed myself, I was also able to let my children free.
It helped me understand and encourage my children’s uniqueness, by respecting their own pace in learning; discovering my children’s talents, loving their sense of humour, imagination and curiosity; noting their likes and dislikes; perceiving their fears, aspirations, anxieties and desires. Getting to know them at a new Covid-19 level. This has been my ride so far; I just hope whatever bumps are in the road we can all get through.
