Parent Affirmation Monday- Curious- 11/12/12

I always love the perspective Kate Oliver brings to a topic in parenting. Being “curious” is a great way to remind us to ask questions before responding to a situation or person. We often assume we know why a person feels angry, or why they responded they way they did… but we can easily be lacking important information. Simply asking questions, being curious, can change our initial assumptions and ensure we respond more appropriately. This idea can also be applied to our relationships with our significant others, co-workers, and parents. Thank you Kate!
