Not our children’s job… (original post at





Messages sometimes come to me in my dreamtime. This came last night:



It is not our children’s job

to do as we tell them.


It is our job

as their parents, teachers, elders, guides

to illustrate to them

why we have made the suggestion.


It is our job

to provide our children with as much information as we can

to empower them to think for themselves

to instil within them,

a deep-seated sense of their own self-worth

and an eye to their own moral compass.


And then, it is our job

to step lovingly aside

steadfastly supporting them

as they decide for themselves

what paths of their own

they will carve into this world.
