5.2. ENJOY WITH ME
'Enjoy with me' is a shared experience of enjoyment and it can take lots forms, from lauder and more active fun to quietly going 'ahhhhhw, this is nice'. I kept this module quite broad and open to make it spacious enough to suit your 'enjoy with me'.
Here is a list of things that can stand in the way of 'enjoy with me' and can help to find more of it. As you are you are going through it, write down practical day to day examples how those things might be showing up for you:
Helpful: expecting to enjoy the time together, even if you are doing something mundane
Helpful: shifting the focus from the task to your child
Not helpful: expecting that it will boring, tedious, stressful
Helpful: valuing connection and enjoyment, having it high on your priority list
Not helpful: distractions
Helpful: putting your agenda on hold
Helpful: noticing and welcoming your child's ideas
Not helpful: 'helpful' comments and suggestions
Helpful: time connection, exploration, fun, is part of your daily/weekly routine
Not helpful: time pressure to get to the outcome
Not helpful: feeling time poor, too busy
