don’t be a parent…

 “Don’t be a parent, be a human being who is a parent.”

- Dr. Haim Ginott

At the same time, rather than viewing our children as children, we should view them as human beings who are children. When we view both ourselves and our children as people, it changes the perspective quite a bit. Our interactions with one another take on an entirely different light. If everyone could remember that everyone else is a person just like they are, people would be much more likely to treat each other with acceptance and compassion. We would see that we are all on our own journeys, learning more about ourselves and from others.
