In advertising, the term “white space” is used to describe an area of white around an image or words. A good amount of white space draws the reader to the image or business name more than an advertisement that is cluttered with images or words. In E-mail, white space is used to describe a nearly empty inbox (oh to dream!). In parenting, try to have more white space by pausing before talking so that what you say to your child really has impact, more “oomph” and may get more attention. It could also be cleaning up a bit of clutter around a toy your child hasn’t used for a while, making that “old” toy stand out more. Less really is more.
