I cant believe the amazing conversations about feelings I had with my 8 and 7 year old boys! We took the card deck out and played the game where you select your favorites one by one, and twiddle down until you just have 3 cards left. I read one of the cards out loud, and didnt think it could possibly relate to my 8 year old. But he said that EVERY WORD was how he was feeling! It was the Bodhi Tree card, and he said he was worried about two of his groups fighting at recess. We were able to have a conversation about it, and talk about things I never would have known about. He also wants to feel "fearless" and be able to say what he thinks to both his friends and our family, and he has been loving the elixir that came with it (as do I!)
I bought this for me, and had no idea it would bring me and my kids closer together and to have these types of conversations without feeling like I'm "prying." I definetally suggest this product to any mothers out there!
