What Every Parent Should Know
Please, Mom and Dad . . .
My hands are small.
I donít mean to spill my milk.
My legs are short.
Please slow down so I can keep up with you .
Donít slap my hands when I touch something bright and pretty. I donít understand.
Please look at me when I talk to you. It lets me know you are really listening.
My feelings are tender
Donít nag me all day. Let me make mistakes without feeling stupid.
Donít expect the bed I make or the picture I draw to be perfect.
Just love me for trying.
Remember I am a child, not a small adult.
Sometimes I donít understand what you are saying.
I love you so much. Please love me just for being me - not just for the things I can do.
