Let’s try a couple of exercises. Ready?

  1. Grab a mirror, a piece of paper, and a pen. Using your non-dominant hand (the hand that you usually do not write with), make a five item to do list. Here’s the catch: you are not allowed to look at your hand or the paper while writing – you may only look at the mirror.
  2. Try doing the same thing, but have someone standing over you telling you what you’re doing wrong. Or how to do it correctly. Or telling you that you only have five minutes to complete the task. Or demanding that you not be frustrated at your inability to complete the task.
  3. No really – do it!

    And then pop on over to Aptly Said – Attachment Parenting International’s new blog – to find out what the point was.

    I’m guest posting there today on the importance of empathizing with children. Please come over and leave your thoughts!
