If I had my child to raise all over again, I’d build self-esteem first and the house later, I’d finger paint first and point my finger less, I’d do less correcting and more connecting, I’d take my eyes off my watch and watch with my eyes.
I would care to know less and know to care more, I’d take more hikes and fly more kites, I’d stop playing seriously and seriously play. I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars.
I’d do more hugging and less tugging, I’d see the oak tree in the acorn more often. I would be firm less and affirm much more, I’d teach less about the love of power and more about the power of love
