Permissions and Things To Remember

•  There is no right way to be or right way to do anything. Be however and do whatever you feel       like – as long as you don't hit or throw things at people or bother people who want to be left alone.

•  You don't have to do anything you don't want to do (even if "everyone else" is doing it). And, you can stop in the middle of anything you don't want to do anymore.

•  You don't have to share anything if you don't want to. And, it's absolutely okay not to want to.

•  The only grown-up you need to take care of or be-the-Mommy-to is your self.

•  Be as gentle and loving with your self as you possibly can. Always give your self the benefit of the doubt and avoid criticizing your self. If you can't avoid criticizing your self, at least avoid criticizing your self for criticizing your self.

•  If you don't see what you want/need, don't make-do, just ask for it.

•  If anyone is bothering you, tell them you want them to stop it.

•  If you feel sad, it's okay to cry; if you feel angry, it's okay to growl, yell or stamp your feet; if you feel scared, it's okay to slow down or to stop and rest.

•  Remember to breathe into your belly, it makes everything feel better.

•  If you feel tired, curl up and take a nap.
