As I was out walking one day I overheard a mother stressing about her child getting muddy , they were dressed appropriately and it was a damp squidgy day as only a January can be And i thought thought it is just a bit of mud don't stress there is more to life than a little mud.Life is captured in moments and they are beautiful snap shots in our lives.So a spot of mud in your day isn't really going to end the world and the child concerned was not exactly covered head to toe.I do believe in positive reienforecemnt it's ok to get dirty its ok to explore it's OK to be a child ! mud is mud and it is the adventure of life that is the all encompassing important rule in life.And who doesn’t love splashing in water !!
