“Would you like all of your groceries in one bag, ma’am?”
“ No, thank you. Please leave the banana separate so that it lives a less bruised life.”
Isn’t this exactly what we want for each other and for our children?
Yet, we feel fear in giving our children and each the freedom to be both responsible and accountable for our actions and our choices without judgment. Experience gives us the bruises of life that heal; the experiences from which we learn and grow.
Let us be mindful of how we respond to our children and each other without adding extra bruises.
