LISTEN TO THE CHILDREN

LISTEN TO THE CHILDREN

Today I listened to my daughter. She wanted to speak to me. I was busy. Then it struck me. What should keep me more busy? I stopped and listened. She told me she loved me. She wanted me to help her make amends in some of the things she did in school and at home. I am the only one that can make a difference in her life right now. She gave me the opportunity to do so.  I remember my own story. I ran away from home because no one listened to me. Then I got to thinking. How often do we listen to the children? If we did, maybe this world would be a different place. I told her that I loved her. I was really doing all these things for her, but maybe I had never told her. I am glad I have told her because now I have a reason to be busy. Listen to the children, they will teach you things you already know.
