How to Really Love a Child

Kaley is back today with a post that fits so nicely with our recent book club discussion on becoming a more mindful parent. The sentiment behind this poem is such a great reminder of the parent I’m striving to be… How do you love a child? We read books on how to feed your …

Just because someone says something mean, does not mean it is true. Excellent article on bullying.

SHARING LOVE TO CHILDREN

How to raise a happy child… (where was this 25 minutes ago)

The Dear Child manifesto is for anyone (teachers, grands, caregivers, parents) welcoming a child into their spaces. I think of it as a love letter to children. They are precious, deserving, and in big need of our welcoming hearts, always. Though I'm far from perfect, this manifesto is a guide for me as I strive to do my best when it comes to caring for one precious three year old.

"The child must know that they are a miracle, that since the beginning of the world there hasn't been, and until the end of of the world there will not be another child like them."

Have a Yes Day with Your Child - it doesn't have to be a grand plan, just a simple day with your kid! Brought to you by Chevrolet Traverse #Traverse

I've been feeling all weepy about my kids going back to school this year. Usually I'm the mom doing the happy dance! But we got a really short break... and with my oldest in middle school... I don't know. Made me all nostalgic for when they were little!

mother and child, this is so lovely and heart felt, i wish i had a photo like this with each one of my babies.

    I would totally rock some undies WITH my babygirl! Lighten up its not your photo. They show worse on the 5 o clock news!!

    I don't watch the news and I'm entitled to my opinion and have the constitution to back me with free speech. Don't force your opinion on other people by telling them to lighten up. Show some respect.

  • Jade Renee [[TuTuCooteBOWtique]]

    Just like your comment I was only stating my opinion, not forcing and certainly not bashing something that you have no right to. What if the girl got her bottoms muddy and asked her Mom to dress the same or maybe the mother got it done for her mother as a sentiment. I simply meant lighten up meaning its just a simple pic (not yours) and their is worse everyday on every news channel that is all. I am not bashing or bullying anything.

    Oh and lighten up was not directed at you but anyone who wants to "bully" a harmless picture of a very special moment. Im sure any parent would agree and as a parent I dont want my kiddos to see their mama call someone/something any name including stupid. Lighten up could also mean consume yourself with things that actually matter.

I need to remember this one for a baby gift. I'll need to add some graphics, personalize it and frame it. OR... Maybe I can put this into a type of frame where the parents insert their own photo.
