My four year old had a very bad day, we should have gone to Australia. I was fed up, and finally asked the question I should have years ago, she is a strong willed child prone to bad days, I asked her what I should do when she was so angry and frustrated. She said give me a hug. That floored me. What a simple Christ like practice to calm both of us down.
As I thought about this, I came the realization that most, if not all, of my best practices online have been suggested at some point by my students. They really are my best source for most everything. Since this realization, I have been more willing to not only look at their feedback, but try to embrace it, expand upon it, and run with it, maybe all the way to Australia. ;)
