“Just give them the environment to grow” and watch them start to flow! Don’t try to control them or manipulate them and making demands of them. They are souls – just little people, to love and express. Let them be. They only need your love, some guidance and your good example. Do not project your fears and insecurities onto them. With your nurturing, love and time, you will see them sprouting on their own with much imagination, gifts and talents. There is much pleasure coming to you when you enjoy children. Pretty soon you will realize you have established a great solid foundation that will follow throughout life. Oh of course, there will be the usual issues that come up along the way, however you will already be in a better position to deal with these things and to help your child through their own life experiences.
