If I Had My Child To Raise Again

If I Had My Child To Raise Again

? I would finger paint more and point the finger less.

? I would do less correcting and more connecting.

? I would take my eyes off my watch and watch with my eyes.

? I would care to know less and and know to care more.

? I would take more hikes and fly more kites.

? I would stop playing serious and seriously play.

? I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars.

? I would do more hugging and less tugging.

? I would be firm less often and affirm more often.

? I would build self-esteem first and the house later.

? I would teach less about the love of power and more about the power of love.
