Let Me Be A Child

Let Me Be A Child

by Annonymous


Let me know when I make you proud.
And help me to have pride in my own accomplishments.
Let me earn your trust. Then trust me.
I won't let you down.
Let me know you love me with a hug or a pat on the back.
Or, when I need it, with a firm but gentle “no”
Let me be. Let me change. Let me grow.
Let me dream. Share my joy when my dreams come true.
Share my tears when they don't.
Let me feel secure in my home. Help me realize that love is always there.
That I can depend on you no matter what.
Let me run. let me laugh. let me play.
And most of all, let me be a child.


These words are brought to you by the Federation On Child Abuse & Neglect. They are worth remembering when the stresses of parenthood and life seem to overwhelm us.
