Cultivating equanimity

Kids grow and mature at different rates. Measuring your kid’s height and weight is active parenting. It’s good practise.

A valid concern for parents is by collecting data on our kid’s growth and maturation we make them self-conscious about their height, their weight, and maybe their appearance.

Besides growth and maturation are complicated. Any information we collect is only part of the puzzle, fragmented. Parents are not code breakers.

The hardest part for a code breaker is to keep a secret. Keeping the bigger picture in their mind. Not letting on, they know, letting slip the advantage.

When our kids enter a growth spurt, we know, physical abilities, motor control, and body awareness fluctuations make movement and coordination difficult.

Attaching emotion to numbers is not good practise. Measuring your kid’s height and weight is good practise.

If not for your kids, for you.
