Spring Break

New to the Life is Therapy series? Here's a quick blurb to tell you what it's about:

Sometimes we parents can get bogged down in the notion that the teaching of our children must be done by professionals. Parents of children with special needs are particularly vulnerable to this idea since children with special needs often have to learn and develop quite differently than children with typical needs. This series centers around the idea that learning can and does occur most effectively through everyday life experiences at home and out in the community--for children with both typical and special needs.

It's Spring Break in our local community. This week, I'm just encouraging you to go be silly with your kids.

Later, when you reflect on the silly fun you had, you may realize just how many "Life is Therapy" moments you had. Come back and tell me about them! Get out there!

For more Life is Therapy Posts, check out the left side bar.

Now it's your turn to participate. This is where we share our ideas and stories with one another. We're all in this together. Let's laugh together, motivate one another, and stimulate each others ideas. If you have a blog, create your own "life is therapy" post and put a link to your post in your comment. If you don't have a blog just leave a comment with your life is therapy story.

That sounds wonderful! Silliness together- that's a good challenge.

It's spring break here too. I'm just hoping Elizabeth isn't sick for all of it - I'm not liking this trend where she is sick for every holiday.

On a happier note, that picture of Jack is ridiculously cute.

Yes, being silly is so important! We like to run like phoebe on friends on many occasions, lol

This morning, I (gasp) took a half day to spend a beautiful spring morning with my daughter at the park. Now THAT was therapy, and a much needed break!
