“Do you have agendas for your children that are more important than the children themselves? Lost in the shuffle of uniforms, practices, games, recitals, and performances can be the creative and joyful soul of your child. Watch and listen carefully. Do they have time to daydream? From their dreams will emerge the practices and activities that will make self-discipline as natural as breathing.” ~ William Martin, The Parent’s Tao Te Ching: Ancient Advice for Modern Parents

      Thanks Linda for the kind words. It’s a little bit of wisdom that we have to remind ourselves that children have to be nurtured to grow and explore.
