If this is a repeat topic, I apologize. Maybe Voronwë can move the post there, if so. Otherwise...

We've all felt culture shock from time to time. Sometimes we react with 'don't ever let that be part of my culture!' But sometimes we wish it was!!. I ran across this article which briefly touches on the way Inuit children are raised to deal with anger, and how their culture as a result is one in which emotions are controlled into adulthood. I really wanted to share it here

How Inuit Parents Teach Kids To Control Their Anger

Elengil, I really enjoyed reading that article. The principle is shared with the positive discipline tenet as well, but it’s amazing if the entire culture follows it!

Here's a follow up on that original story. I'm glad for this one because I was wondering how a person not raised with the same Inuit sensibilities would attempt to implement their teaching. I wasn't sure if it really needed "the whole village" to make it work, or if children already not being raised that way could learn to respond to a new approach.

But I think part of what it really drove home was that we are innately storytelling beings! We respond to stories, even if we don't believe them, we want to hear them, we want to imagine them, we want to tell them!

It is pushing me more and more to try to explain to myself why I'm still not writing mine! And of course, the answer is starting to become "I don't know why!" Which means I'd better get my butt in gear!
