The Real Concern

The Real Concern

A Poem by Rita L. Sev
"

...

"
Dear Parents, don't you worry
that your child won't "fit in";
Rather, make quite sure that they
are happy in their skin.

Rita,
True and valuable words. Being confident and owning healthy self-esteem goes along way. Good message.

That's a great message that I don't hear very often. I like the shortness and direct way you've delivered the message, because it's so simple. It's the "fitting in" that's complicated.

I like this message. I read a book called "Quiet" recently that said something along those lines. Sometimes not fitting in is exactly what we need to grow into who we are meant to be.

So true! Thank you, WillGrant!
'The real concern.' How apt the title, how true the sentiment.

A poem that caring parents everywhere can absolutely relate to. Beccy.

Thanks, Beccy!
Yes and they set the trend instead of follow it.

Yes, they do.
If parents could catch those underlying problems early enough and get them treated appropriately it would have such a long-term impact on those school shootings before they spiralled so badly.
This is wonderful advice 'from the horses mouth' as we say. Top write Rita!

Thanks, Anto! I really do believe that this is a big problem with children today.
Sometimes we forget the power of peer pressure on our kids, but there is nothing more powerful than their knowledge they are loved and supported without compromise. T
