Good Habit's.

A wholesome habit to nuture in a child is gratitude. Gratitude is what you are thankfull for or more similar happy for or made you happy. When asking my daughter this today she said  "going swimming with my dad and making breakfast myself'.

Now today was the first day she has ever made her own breakfast and I very easily could of focused on the negatives. Like nearly a quarter of a pack rice bubbles on the floor and butter not only spread on toast but the whole kitchen bench.

But gratitude is something I practice as a yoga teacher and mum. I try to make sure I notice the things that would otherwise go unoticed or the focus could be negative. It is so easy to turn a positvie into a negative. So making a conscious effort I praised my daughters breakfast making efforts. She was so proud of her self and was smiling from ear to ear. How easily I could of destroyed that by criticising her for the mess she made. I did have to stop and think, but yoga teaches you to do that and your children as well.
