Have been experimenting with a couple things the past 30 days.

  • Not kissing our Son’s head first thing in the morning and last thing at night
  • Not exchanging a bear hug with our Son (13) in parking lot after school

Do the little things make a difference?

Hard to prove, right?

If we always do certain things but start taking them for granted and then stop.

Then is it clear?

  1. Woe! Those are huge things! Was it your idea or your son’s idea? I ask because my children are from both camps; the huggy and the aloof. And I respect their mommy attentiveness limits. No easy task with the aloof one.

  2. Both ideas started before our son could think about things like this. Each has been in place for over a decade.

    The experiment was just that, an experiment. We are back to the ‘traditions’, two of which he really isn’t even aware of.
