Pandemic has helped me being more conscious in parenting because we had time together that we wouldn’t have had normally.

@Naji @IsaSciam and @dearkimberlykay what are some of the things you did differently in the early years that you look back and think you did well?

Isa, how the pandemic affected us❤️

The pandemic really made me appreciate having an instant camera to grab moments to have in hand to pass down to my teens. They now both have their own they use with friends and family and I love they took this from the pandemic.

This was one of the centers my teens have pen pals from. They have access to people of all ages eho have had decades of experience and stories to share.❤️

Using mindfulness grounding throughout the years has helped my teens regulate emotions✨

Ask them to describe how they are feeling in one word and then build from there

Thanks Hannah
Naji
Cooking together in the kitchen with my eldest has been a great setting for us to have longer conversations where she really feels free to open and chat about whatever is on her mind!

Love that tip and idea @naji
