As the old year ends and new one begins I want to say a couple of things.
First; I want to say a massive THANK YOU to all those who’ve supported my work during this last year. Without your lovely messages, reviews, encouragement and endorsement I wouldn’t have kept going. No writer can do so without readers.
We’re all like kids really – we all need a little bit of praise and support to spur us on. Thank you for yours. It’s been heartwarming and fuel for my work.
Secondly, as time to take the decs down draws near, I thought I’d leave you an idea to mull over as you launch into your new family year:
Parenting IS Educating.
Education (in school or out of it) depends on parenting.
Obviously, parenting is not the only influence on your child’s education. But your parenting supports it. Just by loving your children, loving what they do, being engaged in what they do, gently guiding what they do, demonstrating what’s best to do – and to be, you educate.
It may not be evident in tangible ways. But the effect is immeasurable.
Parenting is the most important job you’ll ever do. (See the page)
Finally, do all that you do with your children with respect – there’s no love without it.
Wishing you a loving new year.
