“If I had My Child to Raise Over Again”
By Diane Lemons
(From Chicken Soup for the Soul)
If I had my child to raise all over again :
I’d build self-esteem first, and the house later.
I’d finger-paint more, and point the finger less.
I would do less correcting and more connecting.
I’d take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.
I would care to know less and know to care more.
I’d take more hikes and fly more kites.
I’d stop playing serious and seriously play.
I would run through more fields & gaze at more stars.
Hmm. Sometimes parents forget that children have a mind of their own from the first step they take to the day they get married and a looong time after. As we judge our children's attitude, so our children judge us.
As a daughter, I cannot deny the fact that I scrutinize every action and every decision my parents make. Those that I disagree with, I vow not to ever repeat them or do unto others. But sometimes, after the deed is done, then only do I realize I've echoed the very act I opposed and resisted before.
