Advice To Parent By

"We have a great responsibility to our children. Find joy in them. Don't overschedule them or yourself. You may not be able to take them on exotic vacations. It doesn't matter. When the day dawns bright and sunny, take an excursion to the canyon or park. When it's cloudy and wet, read a book together or make something good to eat. Give them time to explore and learn about the feel of grass and the wiggliness of worms."

  1. So so true...for just that short while they can see and enjoy life as only a child can do...As a grownup I look back and feel like I got pretty jipped on my own childhood, so I really want to make sure my kids enjoy theirs.
