I am five. I need you to understand me.
I am a risk taker. Capitalize on that! Let me explore real things and real places.
I am messy. Don't stress about it! It's the way I learn right now. Let me create and then teach me to help clean up the mess.
I am a confident doer. Even if I am quiet and shy, I view myself as a capable person. My sense of my own abilities is fragile...safeguard it with supportive words and actions.
I am not built for desk sitting. I'll pay attention for a bit then I HAVE to move. Plan for it. Give me lots of time and options for movement.
My busy brain craves action and novelty. I want to see new things, explore new places and learn about new ideas.
I am not as grown up as you think--I need to play, move, explore.
I can only be
who I am.
