Success even before I finished the full training!
I wanted to tell you about the best Christmas gift I received this year. [The boys] and I were out for a walk on Christmas Eve morning. It had taken a bit of convincing to get the boys out the door… but we all needed some fresh air and a break from games etc. I was practicing experiential and proactive recognition and congratulating them ([one], in particular) for recognizing that a walk would be beneficial for the whole family and for not whining (as he had been doing at the beginning of the outing). On the way back home [he] came up beside me and held my hand (which is a rarity) and said, “Kate, you’re a way better mom than you used to be.”
It doesn’t get much better than that! I’m really feeling/experiencing the benefits of NHA.
