I saw children participating. Moving without fear of mockery. My husband reflected on it saying how free they looked. They didn’t seem self conscious at all. As a juxtaposition he noticed the parents walking about the festival. He pointed out that the parents were rushing, stressed, and facing the all too real financial constraints of life, having to say no the children’s many (many many many) requests for them to buy books.
Mandalas are circles, often found in nature, animals, seasons, food, and geometric shapes. A clock, the bottom of a can, a ring, or even a group of people sitting in a circle is an example of a mandala. Take a walk around your house and you may be surprised at how many mandalas you can find!
As September approaches children are juggling an abundance of thoughts, feelings, and pressures. Whether your child is going off to school for the first time, entering a new classroom with a new teacher and peers, or graduating to another school, it is inevitable that nerves will surface. It is important to reassure children that being anxious and nervous about the start of school are completely normal feelings. And, that it is okay to feel excited, nervous, and anxious all at the same time.
