Messages We Give Children


When children are young, they are full of confidence.  They believe they can do anything, be anyone. They are fearless and they have unlimited potential. If I were to ask a group of Kindergarteners, “How many of you think you can be a great doctor, an important scientist, the President of the United States?” most hands would shoot up into the air. Unfortunately, if I were to ask that same question to a group of teenagers, probably only a handful of hands would go up tentatively. As parents we have an amazing opportunity to honor our children and to make sure we send messages that will help our children to become all that they can become.
