Participation, observation, standing back when you know that it's time to stand back, or maybe when somebody's giving you a cue, that it's time to stand back a little bit, and let them do it for themselves. Especially with younger children, parents tend to do everything for them, and have to be reminded to stand back a little bit, and let them struggle.
