The Puppet Show

23 Sep

You’ve waited, you’ve watched, and now the day has finally come. The world premier of “Friends Are the Best,” written by, directed by, and starring my Chickadee.

Thoughts on this project: I’ve always believed that the best way to teach our children to be creative is to value their creations. Letting Chickadee take the helm on this puppet show without me saying, “now, this is how it should go,” has only reinforced this belief. If we want them to be responsible, we must give them responsibility. If we want them to take initiative, we must provide them with a safe and supportive context in which to follow through. If we love them, they will learn to love others, including themselves 🙂
