Our Child’s Nature

It is his nature to be strong and brave.

It is my nature to keep him safe.

 

It is his nature to be independent.

It is my nature to keep him close.

 

I have to remind myself that although it is my nature to protect him, I cannot be the obstacle for his nature to explore.

My nature to keep him comfortable should not hinder him in trying and failing for these will teach him life skills.

My nature to keep him happy should not deter him from discovering that it is okay to be sad sometimes.

My nature to reinforce his abilities should not prevent him from discovering his own strengths and weaknesses.

 

Christian is a survivor, even as an infant.

I will make sure that his nature to be brave and strong will be carried into adulthood.
