"God help us to weave a tapestry of love and not hate in our children, a spirit of tolerance and caring, a dedication to freedom for all and not just some. God help us to sow seeds of peace and justice in our children's hearts today." ~ Marian Wright Edelman
I do believe that that's so much of the key! We need to LOVE our children!!!! And LOVE 'em to death!!! To the death of their doubts, and fears, and insecurities, and inadequacies, and shame! To the death to their thinking that they're not enough, and never will be! To the death to their feeling that they don't measure up, and that no amount of striving will fill its measure to get them to be! To the death to feeling that they'll never win their parent's approval! To the death of feeling unloved, even when they're unlovable.... or do horrid things of sin, because we're all fallible!
