The Parent-Child Relationship provides the Alchemy for turning Lead into Gold, the Fear of Death into Love, Confusion into Peace, and Childishness into Wisdom. As we help our Children to become Adults we have an Opportunity to allow them to help us recover the Wholeness of our own Childhood.

More Contrast Needed
Today I asked our eight-year-old to write a classified ad for me - just for fun. He loves to help Mom with Here You Are, loves to work on the computer, and loves to make some extra money with "chores" - in that order. Not only did he give me a lesson on needing "more contrast" in the little Photoshop Ad I was working on, but then, after I left him to his own devices. came up with this Classified Ad. I must admit I was surprised about the words he chose, and how he hit the nail on the head. He was very pleased with himself.
