Listen earnestly to anything your children want to tell you, no matter what. If you don’t listen eagerly to the little stuff when they are little, they won’t tell you the big stuff when they are big, because to them all of it has always been big stuff. – Catherine M Wallace

    How right. If anyone ever asks me to state my advice for new parents, it wouldn’t be about any of the practical things, which are often subject to change.

    It is to listen to your children – really listen. If you don’t do that, you will never truly know what is happening in their lives and how to help them when they need it.
