What is Imagination Parenting©?
Do you remember when we were kids and the floor was lava?
Playgrounds were pirate ships?
And anything was possible??
Well, it still is…when you Parent with Imagination ©.
Parenting with Imagination© is my personal Parenting Strategy that I’ve developed over the years. It’s based on 3 main elements: Creative Problem Solving techniques, Growth Mindset / Visualization strategies, and imaginative thinking.
Additionally, it uses a simple formula for every situation:
Problem + Something your kids love + Think like a Kid = Creative Solution
Let’s look at an example:
Here’s a real-life example from the pandemic that I’m sure you can relate to.
Problem: We were stuck at home going stir crazy not getting any exercise
Something my kids love: Hiking outside
Think Like a Kid: What if the stairs were really mountain trails?
Solution: We ran up and down the stairs, pretending we were climbing a big mountain.
I also found some information on line that said how many stairs equal big mountain tops, and we used that to help gauge our distance!
