If I had my child
to raise all over again,
I'd build self-esteem first
and the house later.
I'd fingerpaint more
and point the finger less.
I would do less correcting
and more connecting.
I'd take my eyes off my watch,
and watch with my eyes.
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.
