Bigger Picture Moment: So That Our Children Do Not Become Lost....
Every once in a while I am drained by my work with adolescents. One teen's struggle has left me tearing up ever since the school day ended.
If you are a parent, spend time being truly present to your child today.
No social worker, no school psychologist, no special education teacher, no behavior modification program or action plan can ever substitute for the incredible beauty of a mother or a father who understands her or his child was summoned into existence and is precious and irreplaceable.
Without that presence, without that ever-so-basic relationship, it's easy to become lost.
