A volte mettermi nei panni di Laura non ha funzionato. Quindi Mike mi ha aiutato. Mi ha abbracciato e mi ha portato via dal set, dove potevamo stare soli. E nel tragitto si è messo a piangere. Poi si è voltato verso di me e con le lacrime che gli rigavano il viso, mi ha detto: "Hai idea di quanto ti amo?" Il mio cuore si è gonfiato di sentimenti e un attimo dopo mi sono uscite le lacrime. Mike mi ha lasciato piangere per qualche secondo e poi ha detto: "Sei pronta?" Poi abbiamo girato la scena.
Mike ha utilizzato questa tecnica per molte altre scene padre-figlia. Guardando indietro era una bizzarra manipolazione, una specie di modo contorto per fare esibire un bambino. D'altra parte, ha funzionato. E non ho dubbi che fosse terapeutico; piangendo, ho potuto rilasciare alcune delle mie emozioni che ho tenuto dentro. ~ Melissa Gilbert
*MATH* One way how to make math word problems more real and enticing. Choose a topic your kid is interested and find some pictures or paintings (mine was with everything #littlehouseontheprairie related), make a manipulative box (buttons, florist decorations etc.) and make up your math problems based on a picture. I even had a box with helpful words to use (“more than”, “less than”, “cheaper”, “double it” and so on..) #bravegrownspaces
I’m so excited about tomorrow! New year of homeschooling, here we come!!!📚 This year we’re using a curriculum based on the Little House books. This is my old set from when I was a kid! As you can see, it was well loved. I’m over the moon to get to use it as a part of school for my kids. ✨
I was just going through my old posts to check what I’ve already posted, and found some comments I found hurtful. I’ve deleted most of them, but there were few comments I found debatable.
If you’ve followed my posts in both this account and @fanofkarengrassle0225 from the start, you’ll probably know that I’ve sometimes been posting pics with captions with anti-racism stuff. Yes, I know these kinds of posts will cause some kind of debate anyway. But please try to understand that I’m not against racism just because I feel sorry for the victims, it’s because I’ve been targeted before and it has made me want to die. To be specific, when I lived in London, a few parents of my white friends always completely ignored me when they were being kind to all the other white kids. They wouldn’t let their kid invite me to their birthday party. Since then, I’ve grown a sensitivity towards all kinds of racism, including stuff in books and films etc. Okay, maybe those of you who have opposed to my posts will tell me that I’m the weak one. That I need to grow tougher, get a grip, grow a spine, whatever. So what? Yes, I’m weak. I admit it. Maybe people who have been targeted with racism and don’t think much about it are strong (I don’t mean to be ironic). But I just wanted you all to know that there are people who still feel this way; that there are still so many people who have suffered and are suffering. That’s what I’m standing up for. If you’re strong, you’re strong; so please help others that aren’t strong as you are. As for people who are the ones that ARE racist, I have nothing to say to them except from the two words: STOP IT.
I truly thank you if you’ve read all of this down to here!
