If I Had To Raise My Children Over Again

If I had my child
to raise all over again ...

"I'd build self-esteem first,
and the house later."

"I'd finger paint more,
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 serious,
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 often,
and affirm much more."

"I'd model less about the "LOVE Of POWER,"
And more about the "POWER Of LOVE."
