How to Really Love a Child...

How to Really Love a Child

"Be there. Say yes as often as possible. Let them bang on pots. If they are crabby, put them in water. If they are unlovable, love yourself. Realize how important it is to be a child. Go to a movie theatre in your Pajamas. Read books out loud with joy. Invent pleasures together. Remember how small they are. Giggle a lot. Surprise them. Say no when necessary. Teach feelings. Heal your own inner child. Learn about parenting. Hug trees together. Make loving safe. Bake a cake and eat it with your hands. Go find elephants and kiss them. Plan to build a rocket ship. Imagine yourself magic. Make lots of forts with blankets. Let your angel fly. Reveal your own dreams. Search out the positive. Keep the gleam in your eye. Mail letters to God. Encourage silly. Plant licorice in your garden. Open up. Stop yelling. Express your love. A lot. Speak kindly. Paint their tennis shoes. Handle with caring."

And this I believe, means not only our children, but our little, beautiful inner child.
