The Era of "Children should be seen and not heard" is over. It's time to let the children speak and hear what they're really trying to say.
If you could go back in time to your younger elementary self, and give that cute little you a piece of advice, what would you say? What life changing words would you whisper in your ear? Come on, we've all thought about it. Maybe you would give a little investment advice, Super bowl score or the name of who not to date later in life? Or simply just say something encouraging like, "You'll get through this", "You do matter", or "It's going to be O.K." Would you listen and take that advice, possibly changing the course of your life forever?
Kids know more than we give them credit for. These precious little ones have found something deep within themselves, a unique awareness of who they are through their lived experiences.
