Our 8 year old daughter enjoyed her recent auditing very much.
Lots of wins but here’s my favourite:
My daughter had been receiving daily sessions for about 1 week with you.
Normally when it’s bed time she will procrastinate and find every conceivable reason or distraction for “why it isn’t time to go to bed” or “I don’t want to wear those pajama’s” or “I’m hungry”, “I’m thirsty “, or “I brushed my teeth this morning!”
Anyway, this night she complied rapidly with my requests. After completing her teeth she looked at me earnestly & rather bewildered and said “I can’t believe I’m doing what your telling me to do?”
I smiled but contained my amusement and continued on with brushing my teeth as though it was very normal behaviour from her. She walked out and got into bed and under the covers.
She then said, “Dad, I’m thinking of a word and it starts with L…. the next letter is O…. the next one is V…”
I said, “Is it LOVE?”
She smiled at me lovingly and threw her arms out for me to come and be hugged, and said “I love you daddy…I love my family.”
She was sound asleep within 5 minutes.
You can’t ask for much more than that as a parent. It’s these kind of priceless moments that make being a parent so special.
Thanks MK for helping our kids fulfill their potential.
