For all of us out there who have been parents.......we all know how children can "TEST" us.....for whatever reason.
This is just a little something that I came across a while back and it makes a lot of sense.
IF I HAD MY CHILD TO RAISE ALL OVER AGAIN......
If I had my child to raise all over again,
I'd finger paint more, and point the finger less.
I would 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 serious, and seriously play.
I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars.
I'd do more hugging and less tigging.
I'd build self-esteem first, and the house later.
I would be firm less often, and affirm much more.
I'd teach less about the love of power, and more about the power of love......
