The Child

Capable, curious, clever, powerful.  These are just a few words that describe how we feel about children.  Children are not beings for us to fill up with what we believe is important.  They are eager to be heard, understood and supported in their exploration of the world.  They communicate with us in their own individual ways.  It is up to us to listen without preconceived notions.

Children are wonderous.  When we stop and give them our full attention, we are given the gift to see the world through their eyes.  A world where everything is new and amazing. Children help us to slow down and notice the details in the world around us.  They enrich our lives everyday.
