How to end each day with meaningful connection

Having conversations with our children that help them reflect on their day is super important and healthy for helping our children develop valuable skills like self-reflection, self-regulation, emotional health, and connection in their relationships. But if we can’t get more than one-word responses, how much is the conversation really helping them? The answer is: not really that much.

Asking questions that are open-ended, being physically and emotionally available to listen and connect, and modeling how to reflect are all ways that we can encourage healthy conversation and connection at the end of each day.

Benefits and “Rules” of Tree Climbing

You’ve probably heard about some of the amazing benefits of letting your children climb trees. In our #150hoursoutside Project, we even had a tree climbing challenge one week to encourage everyone to get out into the forest and give it a try. Unfortunately, over the past few decades, not only have we seen an epic decrease in the average amount of time our children are spending outside in free play everyday (4-7 MINUTES on average! Yikes!), but along with that, the enjoyment of tree climbing has all but disappeared.
