- Producer20/06/2016With Our Kids, I Err on the Side of NegligenceAfter observing our boys, then 6 & 8 years old, during the long weekend of our family reunion, my sister-in-law with two much younger children, asked me: "How did you get your kids to be so independent?"I have to say, I was a little puzzled...
Comments10/08/2016 #50 Sarah Elkins#48 I totally get that, @Dave Rynne, it's a fine line to know where to step in sometimes. I usually give myself a moment to decide how bad the failure might be if I let something happen -- is there potential for serious injury or heartbreak? Is this something they'll have to face in the near future as older children or adults?27/06/2016 #46 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian#41 Yeah, she was out of the canoe and charging the bear nearly before I noticed the bear was even there. Initial fear turned to hysterics when I saw a 250-pound bear running for the horizon! Mind you by then, we were both charging the poor beast. That's my Hell-Kat! That was Katrina's childhood nickname.23/06/2016 #44 Madeline Anderson-BalmerA wonderful way to raise children. Sounds very similar to how I was raised. Being curious, being given the power to explore on your own time and level, and being open to share your discoveries with others, but being respectful both of the world around you, and the individuals you are offering to share with. Being realistic in this day and age about the dangers in the world (which I have to say were quite a bit different when I was younger), but teaching children to use common sense, and know what to do if they feel unsafe is a wonderful gift! I hope they continue on their way of adventure in this world.23/06/2016 #43 Franci Eugenia HoffmanExceptional post @Sarah Elkins. I feel the more awareness we have the better our chance is for survival, whether climbing a mountain or walking down a city street. Being self-sufficient has no drawbacks from my POV. Having a cell phone handy can be a life saver and it's up to us to use it as intended.23/06/2016 #41 Sarah Elkins#39 Oh dear. Chasing a black bear might have been a small error in judgment, @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian. I'm sure glad that worked out in her favor! I wish it was more common to teach our children to enjoy our natural environment. I'm a city girl at heart, but I love my time in the mountains, on a river, and on the beach.23/06/2016 #40 Sarah Elkins#38 @Anees Zaidi, thank you for that comment. One of the most important lessons my father taught his three children was to know our resources. Whenever we faced a tough obstacle or decision, my father would walk us through our options in terms of who we could go to for help, what we knew we could do well that would help solve a dilemma, etc. My siblings and I are big-time problem solvers and we're all eternally grateful for that skill. Of course, it's not much fun to try to complain to any of us because we always go straight to trying to solve the problem, rather than listen, which is sometimes what people would prefer. :-)23/06/2016 #39 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian#34 Yup, that's certainly an Aires thing. April 10th here. I encouraged my kids to respect and not fear nature. I only had one near heart attack when my daughter, then 5, chased a black bear away from our campsite in Algonquin. Come to think of it, she's an Aries too.22/06/2016 #35 Richard Buse#32 @ Sarah Elkins. There may be drawbacks with children having phones, but phones give them a means to immediately notify someone in the event of an emergency. Phones also give parents the capability to locate children at any given time. Just my opinion here, but I'd like to see school district and city planning processes move back toward building schools within walking distance of most homes. Among other benefits, children get daily exercise just getting to and from school then.22/06/2016 #34 Sarah Elkins#24 @Kristi Latimer, they have to fall and fail to learn, so yes, it's our job to help them back up, I think. Sometimes I wish I was more like my younger sister; she learned from my errors in judgment and was intentional about what to follow and what NOT to follow in my footsteps. Maybe it's the Aries in me - for some reason I seem to choose to learn the hard way.22/06/2016 #33 Sarah Elkins#28 Thanks, @Lisa Gallagher. I figure it would be hypocritical of me to hold them back... I'm grateful to have a close relationship with both of them, too, so they actually tell me when they did something wrong, or if they're considering doing something they're not sure is a good idea. It's kind of like when they were little, before they'd leave for a friend's house, they'd finish my sentence: "Don't forget your...." "pleases & thanks yous. We know, mom." Only now it's "don't forget your..." "phone, safety glasses, and helmet. We know, mom."22/06/2016 #32 Sarah Elkins#29 I think the dangers were just a great then, @Richard Buse, but they were different and we weren't as hyper-aware of those dangers because we didn't have access to stories from nearby towns and cities. You're so right that we need to let our children explore, and we have to give them the tools to stay safe while they're taking those risks. That's why we gave them each a cheap flip-phone when they turned 11. I was so torn about it, thinking "only spoiled kids have cell phones." But then I realized my mom & dad would love to have had a tool like that to offer to us in our adventures! Thanks for the comment.

Comments11/06/2016 #9 Emilia M. Ludovino#7 @joekwonjoe Kwon - Thank you for taking your time to read my buzz and provide positive feedback. You just summed up so well - Feeling of Safety - emotional safety - one of the foundations o a healthy childhood and the most precious gift from parent to child. Thank you. Have a wonderful weekend.09/06/2016 #6 Brian McKenzieThe first step is to unplug yourself from the nightly news - there is little of critical analysis, reasonable reality, or intelligence merit from the blathering current corporate media. News is produced to shock you, to scare you and to keep the low info sheep in line, and at always in the shadows of cowering fear so that you feel like the government is protecting you - or doing things of ethical behavior. Nothing could be further from the truth. Teach them that TV lies, and Social Media is it's cousin. It is not so much what happens across the TV screen, as more to the point - why are they dangling this stimulus in front of the mass media viewing audience? There is evil, war, murder, poverty, carnage from disasters, famine, lies, prejudice, slavery, grand theivery and inequality throughout the globe; there always has been, there always will be. *PS - if you raise an independent thinker and by coincidence you have spent a childhood of telling them sweet lies - they will hate you with a nihilist passion for your deceit09/06/2016 #2 Randy KehoEmila, thank you for sharing your obvious expertise and your thoughtful, caring nature. We would all be better people for embracing your pinpoint insight.
My mother, born and raised in Belfast, Northern Ireland, still suffers from the anxiety she experienced while awaiting her eldest brother's return from WWII. He was a navigator in the Royal British Air Force, entrusted to safely guide his fellow crewman to and from bombing missions over Germany. Her parents chose not to tell her about his experiences during his service. Nonetheless, she learned from other sources that his plane had been severely damaged numerous times and was forced to crash land upon return. As a result, thirty years later, she couldn't go to bed at night before I returned home safe and sound from whatever I had been. Fortunately, my uncle and I always made it home safe.08/06/2016 #1 Emilia M. LudovinoChildren understand everything they hear and see around them.
Probably not with the way we -adults- perceive reality around us, but with their own unique way.
Children sometimes lack the perspective of their world around them. They hear about something that happened in India while they live in Oslo, and they feel that this is happening ...next door.
