The basic, everyday tasks are often the ones where I get my best examples of personality. And I get these lessons from my kids.
One of the hardest things to explain to parents about personality is how kids take in information. Either through Intuition, or Sensing. It’s easy to say the words but it’s harder to explain how to identify it.
This morning I got a lesson from my Sensing son. He was reading his book to me about a “terrible tiger” and about half way through the book the tiger says to the children, “I’m the terrible tiger”. But my son stopped reading at this point, and said to me, “But he doesn’t really say that Mum, cause tigers can’t talk”.
Sensing 101 – is all about what is real. And tigers can’t talk so he just needed to let me know that even though that’s what he was reading, he knew that it wasn’t real.
I love noticing these little reminders from my children. I remember important things in how I need to deliver information to my Sensing children. If I want them to pay attention to learning, I need to make it real to them. Making up a story to make a point will never work, keeping information clear, and real is the best way for Sensing children to take it in, and to pay attention to the learning.
How do your kids take in information?
