IF I HAD TO RAISE MY CHILD ALL OVER AGAIN
If I had to raise my child all over again
I'd build self-esteem first & the house later.
I'd finger paint more & point the finger less.
I would do less correcting & more connecting.
I'd take my eyes off my watch & watch with my eyes.
I would care to know less & know to care more.
I'd take more hikes & fly more kites.
I'd stop playing seriously & seriously play.
I would run thruogh more fields & gaze at the stars.
I'd do more hugging & less tugging.
I'd see the oak tree in the acorn more often.
I would be firm less often & affirm much more.
I'd model less about the love of power
And more about the power of love.
