As I raise my child in consciousness

line

As I raise my child in consciousness
I finger paint more and point my finger less
I do less correcting, and more connecting
I take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes
I care to know less, and know to care more
I take more hikes and fly more kites
I stop playing serious, and seriously play
I run through more fields and gaze at more stars
I do more hugging and less tugging
I am firm less often, and affirm more often
I build self-esteem first, and the house later
I teach less about the love of power
And more about the power of love.
