Another View of Kids Unable to Sit Still

Do you ever wonder why kids often don't sit still for parents.... but then sit still for hours in front of the Tube watching cartoons?

I find this funny. Why? We often forget how to connect with children.

We think our "powerful" statements are all the reason they need to sit still, finish their dinner, or go to sleep, etc.... and then we're perplexed when it doesn't work.

Back to the TV - where they can sit still for what seems like forever.

Why do these cartoons appeal to them? Music, colorful artwork, singing... all these appeal to their creative side and encourage self-exploration. So that got me thinking... are there other ways that children show extraordinary concentration, skill, or connection with others?

It turns out there are - right here: watch video

There's a lot of controversy around this video, which explores Indigo Children - who have a deeper and broader understanding of Human experience than most of us. Some people are scared, others are skeptical... and others think it proves how powerful, intuitive, and creative we all CAN be if we find it within ourselves.

I. of course, have my own opinions, which you can learn about if you click here.

To your continued growth and journey!
