Take the long view

Posted by Meg Parkinson on 19 March 2014
Dr Stephen Cowan's 11th and last insight for you is:

Take the long view. (Because it’s easy to get caught in the immediacy of a problem, especially at 2am.)

Having watched thousands of children grow into adulthood, what sometimes seems like a big deal at four-months old or 14-years old may be no more than a small bump in the road. Children have taught me how to take the long view of life. When we step back and see the big picture of our lives, we discover wisdom and compassion.

I hope that you enjoyed these tips and insights and that they might have helped you in your parenting or in your role as an educator.

Warm Regards,
