The children desire freedom! And every particle of their being from their Source says, “You are free. You are so free, that every thought you offer, the entire Universe jumps to respond to it.” And so, to take that kind of knowledge and try to confine it in any way, defies the Laws of the Universe.
You must allow your children to be free, because the entire Universe is set up to accommodate that. And anything you do to the contrary will only bring you regret. You cannot contain those that cannot be contained. It defies Law.

One definition of “heal” in the dictionary is “To become whole and sound; return to health.” What a gift we can give our children if we can just allow them to maintain their wholeness in the first place, allow their spirits to take their own form without all the constraints that traditional parenting and schooling place upon a human being.
To be whole, to be sound, balanced, joyful, curious…these are the things I wish for my children. The focus on academic topics and grades seem so irrelevant when contrasted to the really important tools for this life’s journey.

I tried to teach my child with books.
He gave me only puzzled looks.
I tried to teach my child with words –
They often passed him by unheard.
Despairingly I turned aside, “How shall I teach this child?” I cried.
Into my hand he put the KEY.
“COME,” he said, “AND PLAY WITH ME.”
