I am at my best when...

You treat me with courtesy and kindness...however you're feeling. You treat me like an adult all the time, even in the moments when you feel like 'tutting'.

You allow me personality quirks and room for creativity.

You ban the words 'fail' and 'stupid'.

You let ME make the decision when my body/brain/group contribution is exhausted.

You praise people for resting.

You arrange things seasonally.

You explain how you come to your good conclusions; how you practice good judgement.

You don't mind going back over things again and again, and bring to mind those incidents when you took 5 times to 'get' something.

You smile at me.

I am content, encouraged and moving forward. My work is play. I am at my most free.
