A toy is something your child invests precious time in and in this way it acts as a teacher. The right toy can teach your child to care, to be watchful and conscious, to be careful, to appreciate, to love. In your child’s hands are the keys to learning to be grateful, to appreciate beauty, to have a sense of peace and reverence for life in all its forms… By the same token, the wrong toys can teach your child anger, frustration, disregard, insult and mockery.
Have you ever seen a frustrated parent at the store with their children? The children look so tired and stressed out, as does mom or dad.

These three simple strategies may be the key you are looking for to shift your child from terrible to terrific.
Physical movement with the child’s entire body should always precede any attempt at putting anything on paper. The child should be asked to stand straight with their arms straight above their heads. They should be able to run a straight line forward. They should attempt it with their eyes closed, then walk the line backwards and so on.

Rudolf Steiner believed that our lives are the confluence of two streams: the stream of the past and the stream of the future. The stream of the past is closely tied to the hereditary forces.

Steiner suggests that we work WITH the temperament to help the children overcome the one-sidedness that their temperament might create.
A child must develop a balance between rest and activity. There must be a rhythm of contraction and expansion, in breathing and out breathing. Children need time to find balance between solitude and companionship and not to be constantly placed into social groups and around other youngsters. They need time to rest, to think, to wonder. The most significant factor in early childhood, from the point of will development, is the presence of clear rhythms in every day life. “Everything in the nature of rhythm and repetition strengthens the will.”
Do you ever stop and pause long enough to allow the wisdom from your child to come forth? I often stop my day and quietly turn on the recorder and engage my children in conversation, just to allow the well of their wisdom to come forth and with that process I am always blessed and I gain a greater respect for each one of them. Here I share one of those conversations.
In an age of consumerism, children often grow up thinking that things magically come from stores. They miss out on the process of something being made, of watching it develop out of nothing more than scraps of fabric and tiny stitches, inspiration and hard work. These soft, cuddly baby dolls are simple to make, fun to personalize and impossible to resist!
