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.

True! Thanks, Tom!
This is so true! I remember being little and my mom telling me that it doesn't matter who liked me as long as I liked me. I absolutely love this poem i really think more people should live by this, we'd have happier kids.
