Relief for me at the thought that there is safety in numbers.
If we all have meltdowns then I guess we are not insane!
Anyway, here's a great question I asked myself.
How do I get back into the swing of things? How do I start mediating again?
The answer being so obvious and with a bit of an oxymoron twist: Questions.
I set aside time for both daughters to do an activity where all I did was ask questions. Not once providing an answer for them but having them figure out the answer.
I had to go back later and bridge and put meaning into the whole lesson.
But that's the beauty of Mediated Learning.
You can return to prior conversations and say, "You know, I was thinking about what we talked about and how it relates to...."
So, if you don't know where to start with Mediated Learning...go back to the beginning. Don't tell your kids anything. Just ask questions and see where it leads.
