tuesday's teachings

(sorry for the absent tuesday's teachings posts the last couple of weeks! here is a good one..)

you have lessons to learn:

"the lessons we most want to teach our children
are the ones we have not yet learned ourselves. 
so we continually try to teach 
what we do not know.

this is futile.
try instead to refrain from talking.
look carefully at the situation.
listen attentively.
let your mind be open to new understandings.
you will learn what you need to know.
and you will thus teach your children
how to learn their own lessons.

nothing teaches children more
than a parent who is willing to learn.
what behavior in your children 
makes you anxious?
what does that tell you
about yourself?"
