Today driving by a public school I saw a sign on the bulletin board that said approximately the following: Children are our treasures in our art gallery. I thought this was a lovely saying. And indeed when adults do treasure their children self-esteem has a chance to really develop and flourish. What is more exquisite than a new baby? How perfect. How wonderul also is the energy and spirit of a three year old. Each age has its special delights.
If you have children try to think of them as wondrous treasures in the art gallery of life. You'll like what you see and the children will love being perceived as so special.
