What do you think if I help plan your birthday party this year. We can meet to talk about EVERYTHING! Like maybe you can do it with a chocolate theme and donuts and factories and you can give out wrapper and one of them can say: golden ticket. And maybe we can design our own chocolate covered donuts that have stuff on them. And whoever gets the ticket gets to have extra donuts…?

[listening can give you insights to the things that have made an impression on our kids 1. Spending time together is his goal; 2. looks like this year my birthday party will be Charlie and the Chocolate Factory]
