A Guide To Raising Children

I'd finger-paint more
And point the 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'd run through more fields
And gaze at more stars

I'd do more hugging
And less tugging

I would be firm
But affirm much more

I'd build self-esteem first
And the house later

I'd teach less about the love of power
And more about the power of love
