Count On Me — Count On Us

I remember back when my children had their first day of school. It was tense and there was a lot of anxiety, for both parent and child. There's a worry when you send your children off to school, when they begin to be influenced by others. Gradually the balance of the world outside your family unit begins to shift. Experiences, interactions, even decisions about your children — they start to feel less in your control, compared to when they were infants. All parents should believe that when they send their kids off to school that their children will encounter caring, professional, and engaging people... as well as kind and helpful classmates. Parents hope that every person their child interacts with has their best interests at heart. I think this is where this blog post is coming from... from the heart.
