Your Developing Child

Time with family, present and in the moment, sharing experiences, build the stories that are the fabric of our lives.

The warm days of summer offer some of my favorite family memories. The annual summer vacations of my childhood, swimming and picnicking with my own children. These types of experiences are woven into our beings and bring connection and memories. From a simple walk to a new adventure, research has concluded that it is not about the material goods but about the experience.

What experiences will bring meaning to your family time? Sometimes we happen upon events or spontaneously decide to try that new thing. Other times we carve out the moments and create the space for the richness of time with those most precious to us. How will you build these experiences during these next months of sunshine and blue skies? Reduce the obstacles and make time to be together. Eliminate the negative thoughts of what can’t be obtained and positively image what is within your means. Cleveland offers a treasure box filled with parks, museums, festivals and waterfronts. Load up the car and separate from the everyday busy events of life. You will gain a trunk load of memories.
