Parental Guidance - Poem by Joseph T. Renaldi
Parents-if you want to make a difference
in children before they leave the nest,
Always set a positive and moral example,
Do what you ought - do your very best.
Be firm in belief and determination,
Be patient and forgiving as part of the test,
Be loving, thoughtful, and understanding,
Be your very best and leave the rest.
Be helpful when you are needed.
Let them know that you will always care.
Be steadfast despite opposition or adversity
when anguish is difficult to bear.
Guide well in your efforts and dread no shame.
In the long run, your children will appreciate you.
When you bestow your blessings upon them,
You will inherit a sense of great pride too.
