How To Really Love A Child

By SARK

Be there * Say yes as often as possible * Let them bang on pots and pans * If they’re crabby, put them in water * If they’re unlovable, love yourself * Realize how important it is to be a child * Go to a movie theater in your pajamas * Read books out loud with joy * Invent pleasures together * Remember how small they really are * Giggle a lot * Surprise them * Say you’re sorry * Say no when necessary * Teach feelings * Heal your own inner child * Learn about parenting * Hug trees together * Make loving safe * Bake a cake and eat it with your hands * Go find elephants and kiss them * Plan to write an opera * Make lots of forts with blankets * Let your angel fly * Tell your own dreams * Keep the glean in your own eye * Encourage silly * Plant licorice in your garden * Open up * Stop yelling * Express your love a lot * Speak kindly * Paint their tennis shoes * Paint their faces * Search out goodness * Sing directions * Sing love * Cook with mud * Talk about life * Take about death * Talk about peace * Talk about war * Handle with care * Forgive.
