The INPUT® Parent

“Your ability to collect useful information serves your child well. Share what you are learning with them and find ways to aim this knowledge together.”

Do you have Input?

Celebrate:

  • Your resourcefulness
  • Your desire to share information & resources
  • Having the right info at the right time for the right person
  • Your better than average memory

Evaluate:

  • Am I asking too many questions?
  • Am I applying what I’m learning?
  • Am I collecting things which have a purpose?
  • Am I oversharing information?

When your family needs help, you most assuredly have something in your bag of tricks to support them. It might be an article, a story, a wise saying. It might also be the overstuffed glove compartment or purse that always seems to have everything – a bit like Mary Poppins. You might also hold onto the many memories of childhood and as your child grows, those little souvenirs serve as reminders to each joyous moment. If holding on to those little items begins to look more like clutter, consider creating a photo scrapbook which will stir those memories without taking up so much space. As your child grows, you will thoroughly enjoy the journey of discovery right along with them, bringing new insights and resources to each experience.

Does this sound like you?
