If I Had My Child
To Raise Over Again

If I had my child to raise again,
I'd build self-esteem first, and the house later.
I'd finger paint 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 would care to know less, And know to care more.
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 would do more hugging and less tugging.
I would see the oak tree in the acorn more often.

I would be firm less often, And affirm much more.
I'd care less about the love of power,
And more about the power of love.
