What do you need? When asked with kind intent this powerful question demonstrates empathy, care and a desire to understand and connect. Ask yourself what YOU need for yourself: when you care for your needs you can meet the needs of others with an open heart and centered mind. Ask your children what THEY need. Food, rest, play, hugs, a helping hand, encouragement, companionship or a listening ear... Try to listen and honor the physical and emotional needs and strengthen your connection!
