I love this blog about saying yes. I wonder how it would look in a classroom to try this. How would it affect your attitude? How does it reflect your belief about the image of the child? I especially loved these lines:
” I think there’s an important distinction between saying yes and being over-indulgent. Part of the distinction for me, is saying yes to intangible needs and wants, rather than just material requests. I guess it boils down to saying yes to taking the time for meaningful engagement, and I don’t believe that’s ever over-indulgent”
How about it? Can you accept the challenge? Just say YES!
