The other day @siankiki said that when she was 7 a boy at school told her "Go back to your home, you’re not Italian". Gaia today is a strong, confident woman who knows her worth, but she will have the scar of that stab forever.
Words are knives: how we use them is our responsibility, along with teaching it to our kids through our example.
We are the first educators of our children.
What we teach at home in the first 6 years of life is more important than any academic subject. Empathy, respect, self-control, integrity, these are the subjects of life.
Too often we forget that we are not raising children, we are raising adults.
