      Thanks Lavi! Appreciate your feedback. Since you work in Education and with young children, I reckoned it would be of huge interest to you. There are other, amazing posts written by Priyanka-the geeky parent behind this parenting blog that you should enjoy.

  4. Such an important post. I loved the point about not telling children how they feel; ‘you have no reason to be upset’- policing other people’s emotions and how they should feel is something we should never do and you’re so right in identifying that it begins as a child. This post in itself is beautifully empathetic- you are such a wonderful mother! Thank you for sharing.
