Hey, I know as a parent you are the role model an all, but don’t forget to have fun yourself too.
Use this little post as your permission if you need to.
Get on the floor and tickle your daughter till she can’t contain herself.
Find the Nerf swords and have a battle.
And invite her to have tea on the living room floor.
Never run through the sprinklers with a 3-year-old? You’re missing out.
Your daughter might need a million things from you, but she needs you to relax too.
In teaching girls to have fun, you forget to have fun yourself. You lose your own sense of play in creating playful opportunities for them. It is part of your job to create and to teach, but it is also your job to rest, relax, and play.
