When we speak of kindness to our children, our actions have the greatest impact. In previous posts, I’ve mentioned that my kids are my greatest critics on this subject. A week ago, my younger son “nailed” the evening of his birthday celebration at a restaurant. I commented that I thought it was so very sad that a mother was spending her dinner time reviewing flashcards with her 2 preschoolers.
As we made our way to the parking lot after a wonderful birthday celebration, Michael mentioned that he didn’t think it was right for me to criticize the woman with the flashcards.
He was right. It was none of my business. We are all entitled to raise our kids the way we choose.
