The more we listen, the more our children teach us

By – Jeannine Miller (jmiller@mossbuildinganddesign.com)

Like many people, I suspect, now is one of those times you wonder what the world is coming to.  I question how I’m going to teach my kids to treat others with kindness and still size up situations with appropriate caution.  I worry that in trying to keep my children safe, I’m teaching them to be suspicious and, therefore, not give freely of themselves.

This week, ironically, my daughter’s 1stGrade homework assignment was to think about ways to give to others.  When I reviewed her work, my heart was full. Moss Building & Design

“Sing a song for someone.  Help a neighbor.  Check someone’s dog.  Feed someone’s cat.  Give someone a hat.  Read a story to someone.  Find someone’s lost dolly.  Make someone a loaf of bread when they’re sick.  Give someone flowers.  Give someone a present.  Play with someone when they are feeling sad.”

Who am I kidding?  The kids get it better than we do.
