Poetry, parenting, schooling & eco-resources

-- Quote of the Day --

“…So I think that we have so many facets, but we tend to label and classify ourselves that actually stop our growth us. We are here as evolving beings – we here to grow and expand and whenever we get stuck on one path, what is going to happen is a little bit of suffering until we learn to get out of our own way. …We go through this every 5 to 7 years. …Many people take other peoples path, we see how other people have done things, we learn from it – but if you don’t at some point if you don’t take your own journey, you are going to get stuck. …I never tell people that they should home-school. Sometimes I’ll hear stories and say ‘Wow public school is really working for you - good for you!’ …Continue thinking about their best interest and your children will never be ruined, that is the thing, kids know when you are thinking about their best interest. It is when we put them in school because we don’t want to have to think about what we have to do as parents. We put them in school and we think the system will take care of it. …know if their passions are not being recognized in school – because what happens is your child will start to rebel. …So explore finding an artist who might take the child on as an apprentice or give lessons.
Any shift in behavior is a sign for you to have some listening time with your child.
