Did you ever go to sleep on an argument hoping that you would wake up the next morning and things would be ‘all better’? Were things better? The last 20 minutes of the day are an important time for connection, or more specifically re-connection. This is especially important for children who are trying to make sense of the experiences of their day as they transition into sleep. When their day includes moments of feeling unwelcome, shame, or unsafe to be themselves, then these 20 minutes are the last chance to repair the painful separation before it gets embodied during sleep and begins to undermine their self esteem and confidence more permanently. Andrew explores the power of simple connection practices that help enhance confidence, esteem and ease in adults and children alike.
