There once was a lad who played on the floor with a deck of cards and a bag of marbles. Oh the games he would play. He liked playing with things outside their purpose. In High School he wrote a 152 word prepositional phrase. It was longer than this post. Imagination exists at all ages. In the sixties he imagined being able to record music, all by himself, with a computer. Imagine that! The boy’s parents let him play with the cards and marbles. They said let him be himself. Later, he let his daughter be herself. My how she thrived.
The best thing a parent can do for a child is allow him or her to be themselves. I was blessed with those kinds of parents and feel that I’ve done the same for my sons. Well done in a hundred words.
Thanks Rochelle. I do so appreciate your encouraging words.
