Paddling with your kids 👍🏼/👎🏼? | It was great to hear/see @thefunemployedfamily talk about their experiences 🌊❤️🤙🏼 | #repost @thefunemployedfamily ・・・ Getting kids to stretch their comfort zone, good or bad? 🤷🏼‍♂️ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Here’s a scenario many parents know well: ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ •Kid: “I want to be brave and do fun activity X!” ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ •Parent: “Yay, let’s do it!” Parent goes through all the effort to prepare for activity X and just as you’re ready to start... ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ •Kid: “No! I don’t want to!!!!” ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ •Parent: “😕” ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ So, what do you do? As parents it’s so easy to cave in when you can sense a bit of fear in your kids, but at what point do you encourage them to power through the activity? ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ That was paddle boarding for Liesel. She surprised us at 18 months and asked to ride on the SUP last summer. Then she didn’t want to. Then she did. Then she didn’t. We went anyway. At first she didn’t love it, but by the time we got back to shore she wouldn’t get off the board and wanted to continue 😂. We’ve found that 99% of the time once she faces her fear she ends up saying “Can we do that again??!!” ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ——————————————— 🏄‍♀️ @TheFUNemployedFamily ——————————————— ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ #sup #paddleboard #supwithkids #exploreyourworld #supwithus #paddle #holiday #bluesea #standuppaddle #familyadventure #lifegoals

Soaked to the skin, my heart so full of gratitude for their kindness. 🌈💛 Up again early this morning to speak to @bbcyorkshire Radio York & I’ve been invited into @bbclooknorth tonight to share the adventure & plastic pollution I saw. 🌿🤞 Thank you for all your messages & donations.
