"Children need to be enjoyed and valued, not managed.
We often focus on the problems of life rather than on the possibilities for enjoyment and learning available to us.
When we are too busy doing things for our children,
we forget how important it is to simply be with them."
- from "Parenting from the Inside Out" (Siegel, Hartzell)
What a heart check this was for me.
I hope this encourages other moms and dads out there~
p.s. Highly recommend this book!!
