We've talked about this before but just had to chime in... not chasing your kids is HUGE. Not just because you get to leave a playground with your brood actually following along behind, lol, but because this instict keeps them safe.
How many toddlers do I see bolt from their mothers into a parking lot, into the street, and around the corner out of sight? How many kids wander off not paying attention to where mom is because mom is always the one to do that, but mom is engrossed in the sale rack or haggling with someone at customer service, and the child ends up lost in a huge department store?
I just went to Home Depot yesterday with all 3 of my kids. SUCH a kid playground in there omg. And I thought, holy crap, here I am pushing this cart and all 3 of them are following next to me. And I thought, if I lost my child in this store it would be a horrible nightmare. They could disappear around one of 50 aiseles, go out one of 15 doors into one of 2 huge parking lots... with anyone
Honestly the biggest boon from being more CC with my kids (I would never claim to be 100% CC -- I mean I do live in suburban America not the rain forest... unfortunately lol) is the kids following me and being careful to manage that invisible tie between us. Oh that and not complaining when doing chores.
