I was a child once. I remember what it feels like to be unsure of my place in the world, to be afraid to take risks because I might get it wrong, and to not speak up because people might not like what I had to say.
While many of the experiences school-aged children have are a regular part of growing up, we run a great risk if we minimize them. Even though events and situations seem small to us as adults, we must remember how BIG they feel as a child. If we don’t, we may unwittingly perpetuate their confusion and allow for the seed, “Maybe it’s just me,” to be planted.
