    Another great book is called Nanette’s baguette ! It addresses mindful eating but also the universality of habit.

    Thank you Susan for this meaningful activity. It will be perfect to demonstrate to the students how people have different perspectives and that is acceptable.

    is it a duck or is it a rabbit? It s easy for me to understand others point of view, but difficult to handle the behavior which is hurting me, like rejection for example…

    Thank you for easy way to show kids how 2 people can see the exact same thing differently, and how that can lead to awareness.
