Absorbing Time

30 Dec

Below is an excerpt from the Treading Water section of The Dad Connection.

Absorbing time is a subtle aspect that when put into the daily function of a busy parent-child relationship it can change not only the vibration of the moment, but can begin to set a behavior that helps remove potential conflict and stress that almost always follows a miscue or understanding of what we are expecting in our preset schedules.

Scheduling time is absolutely unavoidable, but absorbing the steam from the tension created when the schedule has to be changed is a technique that can allow us to pay more attention to more critical issues, get our life moving on more quickly, and stay on track. Time efficiency is probably not an ideal expectation with kids. Constant adjusting and absorbing the time (shock) is.
