Archive for the ‘parents’ Category

A few previous careers ago included teaching school pre-K-8, and I understand how the onset of August brings a combination of positive anticipation for the upcoming semester as well as disbelief that the summer is almost gone!

Sometimes thoughts about what to do differently and about goals for the children and myself came through the August summering…

My experience and training in the field of education along with more recent professional trainings including Living Values Education for Educators and Parents have included the importance of including the following concepts at home and in the classroom:

Peace, Love, Happiness, Respect, Cooperation, Honesty, Responsibility and Tolerance/Acceptance.

“Don’t worry about a thing,

‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right.
-Bob Marley

Growing up and beyond I became disillusioned with this statement, hearing it often from Mom.

I heard “everything will be alright” when it wasn’t going that way at all and looked like no chance of improving.  Later, as a young mom myself, I decided not to make that a recurring theme in our house, to be “realistic” and explore consequences and results of actions in different ways.  Later, when my daughters were into their teens I explained this lack of “pollyana” philosophy as a direct result of disillusionment from Grandma’s statements.

Since then, I’ve explored many philosophies/spiritual teachings/ “self-development” theories and am learning more each day. Patience and tolerance often increase as we mature.  I  find myself resonating with the statement that is repeated several times in the movie “The Marigold Hotel:

“Everything will be alright in the end…and trust me, if it’s not all right, it’s not the end.” 

It’s about hope and faith added into the mix.  I understand now that is what Mom and Bob Marley really meant… behind the simplicity of the words.

The unicorn became the most important imaginary animal of the Middle Ages and Renaissance when it was commonly described as  a symbol of purity and grace. In the encyclopedia its horn was said to have the power to render poisoned water potable and to heal sickness.
