24 Signs Your Child Is A Free Spirit

Does your little one like to think outside the box, do things their own way and not let social norms box them in? 

Does your little one like to think outside the box, do things their own way and not let social norms box them in? You could have a free spirit on your hands.
And despite popular thinking, free spirits are not flaky or unreliable, they are, in fact, an incredible addition to this world.
Bringing new ideas to the table, finding adventures where they can, not letting society box them in and just generally just doing their own thing.
Sound like your child?
Well, here are 24 other signs your little one is a free spirit.
  • They have no concept of time – and no matter how many times you remind them to get ready you’ll find them sitting on the side of their bed drawing or daydreaming out the window.
  • You are constantly trying to tame their ‘wild’ hair because they have no idea what a brush is
  • The teacher is always pulling them up for daydreaming in class
  • They are easily distracted by sounds or noise or something sparkly, even when in mid-conversation
