After just one week of consciously trying to slow down parenting and life in general, imaginative play in our house has rocketed basically because the children have more time to be imaginative. E’s latest idea to set up a fruit shop with real fruit was brilliant!! Lots of careful selection and placement of fruit, acting out of roles, till work and the best bit of all, the kids ate the whole lot!!! “Would you like a fruit cocktail mummy?”!! Oh yes please!!! ‘Slow parenting’ or should I say ‘slower parenting’ rocks!!!! Long may it continue.
