One of my favourite authors said this – it’s far more eloquent than anything I could come up with.
It’s not our job to toughen our children up to face a cruel and heartless world. It’s our job to raise children who will make the world a little less cruel and heartless. L.R. Knost
The little lady gets so upset when saying goodbye to the folks she loves. I do usually just distract her but this is an interesting alternative that will probably serve her better in the long[…]
