At any age, it is important to stretch our mind by taking a different perspective. I think this is especially important with children. Teaching them to approach situations in a unique way is great for their development and can be a lot of fun too. The other night, my daughter was admiring her grandparents' Christmas tree. After staring and saying 'whoa' for a few minutes, the novelty wore off. Later, we decided to lie on our backs under the Christmas tree and look up... we both had another 'whoa' moment by taking a different perspective of the same tree. Take a minute with your little one this holiday season and try something different!
