i read this today on rawmom.com

if i had my child to raise again- oh wait, i am raising my yummy child right now! this one's for eliot!

I’d build self-esteem first and the house later;

I’d finger paint more and point the finger less;

I’d 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 and gaze at more stars;

I’d do more hugging and less tugging;

I’d see the oak tree in the acorn more often;

I would be firm less often and affirm much more;

I’d model less about the love of power and more about the power of love.
