In the previous post I mentioned how lucky we were to have so many grandparents visit with us over the last two weeks. I mentioned benefits of having grandparents visit with us and sharing in our work. In this photo you can see work happening in our construction zone. This work was generated by a grandmother using her own, unique provocations. As I listened from afar, she encouraged the children through provoking statements, encouraging remarks, and most importantly just her sense of being with the children.
Children ARE motivated by adults who take the time to JUST be with them. This work probably wouldn’t have happened without this grandmother.
Thanks, Grandmother, for giving us some of your valuable time!
