Frames and Lenses - what are yours?

It’s all about the frame.

The lens we use.

The intent we have.

 

This is particularly true when it comes to parenting.

Are parents guardians? Guides? Coaches? Mentors? Exemplars?

Are children autonomous? Innocent? Half-baked? Puzzles? Perfect in every way?

 

What do you think?

What underlying mental maps inform your role(s) in parenting?

What do you see?

What do you expect?

 

These and other kinds of perspective-taking questions come to mind as I read this article about reframing time-out.

Thank you, Baan Dek!

Thank you, Charlotte Wood!

 

(Yes. we're related!)
