Have you ever had someone give you advice about finding teachable moments in everyday life?
A teachable moment is where you see an opportunity to teach your child something.
This concept started out with the thought that unless you engage someone’s mind at the moment that is right learning would maybe not take place.
That’s probably why, as a homeschool mother for over ten years, I’m kind of a moment that is teaching.
But, as usual, there’s a right and a way that is wrong of teachable moments. Let’s talk about this!
Teachable Moments Gone Wrong
Motherhood is difficult, especially whenever our kids are getting through hard times or something challenging occurs.
As mothers, we frequently choose those moments to instruct lessons that are important instill positive values in our children. Go you!
And in those teachable moments, we often feel like we’re not heard, or what we say does matter that is n’t or that people simply wasted our sound because our words appear to go nowhere.
And this is often triggering.
Some times, it is simple to determine you’ll be a confident mother and clean it off, but other times, it just hits that nerve, specially when you’re currently coping with anxiety, despair, or whatever else in the PTSD family.
Some of the finest teachable moments happen when we’re having enjoyable.
When kids understand they will have our undivided attention, we abruptly have theirs, too.
Then the momster happens… That yelling, screaming, fire-spitting dragon you hate to be.
Well, there goes the teachable moment. You’re feeling as with any this minute is teaching you is how long you want to be.
After many years doing this motherhood thing, I’ve discovered that teachable moments and chaos don’t quite mix.
Creating along you are from being the positive mom Positive moments that are teachable*)It’s one thing to locate teachable moments and embrace teachable moments, but i will be a proponent of developing good teachable moments.
I define positive teachable moments as those teachable moments that happen when you yourself have your child’s attention in a setting that is positive.
Positive teachable moments happen when you are spending quality time, having fun, or working together.
When children know they have our undivided attention, we suddenly have theirs, too.
