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
where they can, not letting society box them in and just generally just doing their own thing.
Sound like your child?
