Poor Emma. Ever feel like her when you were growing up? Angry or defiant because others left you out or didn’t want to do what you wanted them to do. How did that make you feel? Maybe there’s a few people you’d like to give the Raspberry to now.
Being kind to others isn’t always easy no matter how old we are. It often takes patience, understanding and caring to appreciate another’s feelings or point of view. Attributes that are often stretched to the limit at this time each year.
When you feel like you’ve had enough, instead of sticking out your tongue, take a moment to pause, take a deep breath, and heed the advice of Emma and others, who’ve learned early on, the wisdom that comes with age.
“Life is about being happy. Loving, and caring.”
Caleb, Age 9
“Always have positive thoughts and you will have a great day.”
Summer, Age 8 and ¾
“Try to be positive even in a negative situation.”
Melody, Age 13
