The quote that helped this parent guide her children to take responsibility for their actions.
We have to learn how to appreciate our imagination. We all have it. We may think we don’t, but we do. Without even realizing it, you use it. Everyday. The more it’s acknowledged and recognized, the more it’s used. The more it’s used, the more our lives can change.

Helping children dream big! “We do our best to guide and love and nurture and support our children and their dreams. Possibly, somewhere along the way without realizing it we either squash their dreams, try to tell them about a better dream, or ignore the excitement of their enthusiasm all together.”
