See, it’s a palace!/

About the poem

Kids know how the adults that care for them feel. If you are always overwhelmed and trapped by parenting, and pushing your young children away from you, they will feel this. Can you find a way to enjoy your time with your young ones? Play on the floor with your kids. Go to the park together. Read a book in bed. They want that cozy, loved feeling. Like you did as a kid.

The same goes for us teachers, childcare workers, and for us in all of our relationships. Let’s give up that sense of martyrdom and really enjoy our interactions. Our time together is brief and precious!
