Symbiotic relationships

Two of my kids are the snuggling type. While I would love to live in an ideal world with the time to snuggle with both of them every night, it is not always realistic. Tonight they fell asleep cozying up together. Why hadn’t this dawned on me before? The kids can offer exactly what they need for each other. I think about this in teaching too. So often, we do things for the kids that they can do for each other.

How can we step back and allow for more symbiotic relationships?
