That is what we were today. Inside out. We played inside and outside and sometimes our emotions were turned inside out. We had a lot of high emotions today. We tried putting our finger on what was causing the emotions to be escalated but couldn’t quite figure it out. We got a lot of conscious discipline practice today. Sometimes on Fridays we are tired just from a busy week ( Monday’s too from the weekend ) but that didn’t seem to the be case . Hopefully we will wake up from our rest time ready to conquer a few more hours of our day.
Inside out. Since we talked about emotions all week we thought it would be fitting to watch the movie ” Inside Out .” When I hear of facilities that have TV time I wonder is there enough tylenol in the world for that ? Children this age aren’t meant to sit still. Probably at home they are less distracted and it is easier for them to move around. When there are 16 children in one room the movement has to stay to a minimum. Can you imagine ? Just for the record, children were given the choice to watch the movie or play in the playrooms. We only had one little decide to play and when she realized she was alone she joined the group.
A professor at Berkley wrote there are four things to learn from this movie .
Dare I remind you that we all know how to handle big emotions ? Last night we started with a small core group of families that are going to walk through conscious discipline together. We have set the next two meetings . Some of them are even hosting meetings at their home ! Join us !
So, yes , we did something we rarely do today . We watched a movie. I am not sure the littles learned anything from it but we can as adults. 🙂
