Shaping in unconscious ways Another great KK post, this time on how available patterns shape/prepare in a great effortless way. I’ll make a point of being persistent in just showing how much I like something by doing it, doing it, making the pattern and the love I have for that particular activity, apparent to my son. Wether he joins or not, shows appreciation/interest or not.
