This morning I heard our 6 year old announce to our 3 year old, “Remember, it’s no fighting day.” It is as if she said, it’s National No Fighting Day with all the authority she had in her voice. Five hours later there hasn’t been one raised voice between the two of them. While it feels like a miracle, perhaps it is just the power of setting firm intentions.
What would happen if we did this in our classrooms or in our lives? What would happen if we set one firm intention at the beginning of the day and spent the day achieving it?
