If I Had my Child to Raise Over Again

As I have been busy getting my website done, e-books and all that jazz I realized my little man is only little once and this baby inside me is only there a few months longer.  Time to take a break and be with them both, I will work at naptime and bedtime.

If I Had my Child to Raise 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 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 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
