The smallest thing you do affects everything. Thomas Carlyle
Take a minute or an hour to go and watch your children at whatever age interact with their family, their peers and their educators. You will be astounded at the growth you gain from being part of their world. It is a very different experience that what we as adults consider important. It is an picture of the future and most often one of surprise and pride to discover opinions that you have encouraged being repeated to you. Sometimes it is jogs your mind set and memory.
Take part, it is worth the journey.
