4 things for my 4 year old

“What is a normal child like? Does he just eat and grow and smile sweetly? No, that is not what he is like. The normal child, if he has confidence in mother and father, pulls out all the stops. In the course of time, he tries out his power to disrupt, to destroy, to frighten, to wear down, to waste, to wangle, and to appropriate . . . At the start he absolutely needs to live in a circle of love and strength (with consequent tolerance) if he is not to be too fearful of his own thoughts and of his imaginings to make progress in his emotional development.”

I like this. Kids being kids.
We often hear that kids should behave and stay silent and be this or that. But at the end of the day that does not help them growing up. They must experience many things before finding their way.
Much love to all!

That's true Marie, and childhood really is sooooo short. I wish every adult could experience a beautiful childhood, and never forget how magical it was.
