To Parents

Though beans of the same pod
Our children are not of the same mould
‘Be like others, ’ they are often told
And discrepancies, dealt so bad

Remember! Each child is different
With faculties quite variant
So celebrate the difference
Not through mere sufferance
But through open preference!

    This is a great poem that I wish for each parent written on heart to have. Every child, a treasure on its own, all we need is only cherish them and offer our greatest love. Thank you dear Valsa for another wonderful poem to touch my heart!

    A good message to Parents Valsa. Each child have their own specific
    qualities and should be treated accordingly. We should not try to mold
    them into what we would like them to be. Nurture them when they are
    young then let them leave the nest to experience life on their own and
    make decisions whether good or bad. A good write on parenting.

    An advice to the discerning parents to correct themselves and proceed with the tiny tots from the very next phase of the life of the latter. A mother speaking from her own trails and errors rectified speaks here and she has the resemblance of one Valsa George.

  • Danny Draper (7/15/2013 9:11:00 AM)

    A wonderful didactic and instructive poem of positive parenting to respect and embrace differences and accept our children as different individuals not copies to be manipulated so we may live vicariously through them, as if we were ever perfect!
