It’s easy to tune out what our children are prattling on about as we reply to a text or make dinner. It’s easy to let some of the beauty and wonder of life pass us by when we’re distracted.
According to the poet, Mary Oliver, these are the instructions for living:
- Pay Attention
- Be Astonished
- Tell about it
These simple but profound instructions combined with this week’s Power of Families challenge (give your children undivided attention) inspired this week’s podcast episode.
Listen as Saren and her mother, NYT #1 Bestselling Author, Linda Eyre, discuss why it’s so important to really pay attention to our children and to the world around us. As we work to be more fully present and focus on nurturing awe in ourselves and our children, we can be better parents and better people. As we tell others (especially our family members) about what we notice, we can take things to a whole new level.
