A great way to spend your time is dancing. If you can find a beach to dance on, all the better! Trying to teach your kids to dance to the beat of their own drums can be difficult and sometimes heartbreaking. The best thing you can do is to encourage them daily by pointing out all the things they are good at doing. Be specific, kids need to know you notice them as people, just like adults they want to feel valued for their unique gifts and talents. Before you know it, they’ll be returning the favor and showing someone else how special they are….and that is just good stuff.
