Other kids wait at the school bus stops in the morning.
No adults nearby.
You see it everyday, right?
I needed to be somewhere else, so I walked away.
He was the first one there.
He waved bye.
It went fine.
The longer the rope, the better he learns to take care of himself by watching the world around him.
And please know, we work daily on these skills of awareness and independence.
A minute of pure panic, and then a game was born.
We are also working on independence walking home from the bus stop after school.
That’s a game now also.
John knows he has to find me hiding in the bushes somewhere way down and around the corner.
What are your intervention games for growing Independence?
Peace be with us.
