Perspectives

Perhaps one day he’ll see a different perspective.

How does one teach perspective?

Is it easier to teach perspective to an adult, or a child, or a teenager?

How does one teach perspective?

Especially when the person no longer attends school,

in hopes that one of the Teachers might cover it in a literature class, or history, or

maybe even perhaps an SEL pop up that the school adopted for a year.

How does one teach perspective?

To an adult, who is very argumentative?

To a teenager who says everything you say “is wrong”.

How do I stay calm, not get caught up in the argument, be a role model for

perspective taking?

I will keep this short. It is the end of a very long day. I hope.

The real question I am currently, this minute,

this slice of my day, dealing with, with an adult AND a teenager,

is…

How does one teach, or emulate, perspective?

I've enjoyed writing since the first grade, since my aunt gave me a journal so long ago to write in. Now I write to enjoy the moments. I write to stretch and share my thoughts. I write to connect and find calm. Raising three kids, three rabbits and two cats, with a school social work career, I need the daily refuge writing offers. The simple reflections allow for an abundance of memories to the hurried pace of life.

One thought on “Perspectives

  1. Oh, Kara, thanks for your honesty and the rawness of your thoughts here. Hope the sunrise came to a new day. It seems like you are modeling seeing from different perspectives right here in this slice of life post.
