I remember during my years in training a dear teacher once said, "the children feel the energy of the earth." You can see that it now that it is spring! The children are in a way busting out. They are tripping over everything just trying to get there fast enough, and they are taking risks that maybe they shouldn't. They are like the flowers getting ready to burst! When my daughter was around 8 years old in the spring she jumped from a swing... (Feeling daring) and broke both arms. When we were escorted in an ambulance from Richmond to Burlington emergency room, the EMT said, spring is there busiest time with children. So... "Safety First!" says Ms. Terri and at the SAME TIME, try asking the question... "Am I Parenting (or whatever else) out of LOVE or FEAR?" It's a tricky question... If you're clear, Love always Wins.
