The best education is not only academically but primary the one that educates and leads the heart of a human being to connect to others with Respect, Love & Compassion. Acceptance for those who are different!!! The understanding that one plus one equals ONE!!!
"The things you say, the tone of your voice, the anger or calm of your words—these things are noticed by your children and by others. They see and learn both the kind and the unkind things we say or do. Nothing exposes our true selves more than how we treat one another in the home." Truth is truth no matter who says it, and while I no longer belong to this church, these words are solid truth.
while I do agree with this, I believe said child(ten) will remember the feeling of being left out when say, a grandparent, buys more for the other grandchild and seems to forget the others or spends significantly less, very obviously less. That makes em feel like crap and way less important. Add in zero time spent with said child from grandparent and there ya go.
