Ways Of Being with Oneself and with Children
By Ute Strub and Elsa Chahin
Being present requires attention and self- awareness. As adults, we have a choice on how to be when interacting with children. We can choose to be mechanical and hasty, or we can choose to be present and mindful in every encounter of togetherness with children.
This book shares a series of guided activities (called experiments) that offer opportunities to feel the difference between on way of being and another. Through feeling this difference in one’s own body, we are certain one most likely will choose to interact in a present, mindful and loving way.
