Nature + Nurture = Healthy Relationships

I like what Bruce had to say on his blog about parenting orchids and dandelions:

The key to understanding orchids, dandelions and parents might be in conceptualizing the relationships between us all as the central point of focus, moving away from the notion of stand-alone gifted or troubled children toward an emphasis on trusting and nourishing vs. troubled and destructive relationships.

Amen, Bruce. We're all in this together.

Hey there Shannon, and thanks for linking up with Privilege of Parenting. I too see life as a series of transitions and think there is much growth, wisdom and happiness to be found in helping each other through our never-ending transitions. I like what you're up to here and look forward to staying connected in the service of all our kids
Namaste, Bruce
