I found this video of Oliver (almost 17 months) and I melted! 😍 I watch this video and I’m proud of myself: I don’t talk so not to interrupt his concentration; I don’t say "good job” at any time, because it's not necessary: satisfaction must come from his work, not from my praise. I wait when he doesn't tidy up, but I trust him: and he does come back to return the toy to his shelves. When you ask me how I taught my kids to play independently and tidy up, I didn't: just presence, silence and trust (which required a huge transformation of myself!)⁣⁣
