Parents: You are your child's #1 teacher ...

By a Child

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw you hang my first painting on the refrigerator,
and I immediately wanted to paint another one.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw you feed a stray cat,
and I learned that it was good to be kind to animals.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw you make my favorite cake for me,
and I learned that little things can be the special things in life.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw you make a meal and take it to a
friend who was sick,
and I learned that we all have to help and take care of each other.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw you give your time and money to help people
who had nothing,
and I learned that those who have something should give to those who don’t.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I felt you kiss me good night,
and I felt loved and safe.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw you take care of our house
and everyone in it,
and I learned we have to take care of what we are given.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw how you handled your responsibilities,
even when you didn’t feel good,
and I learned that I would have to be responsible when I grow up.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw tears come from your eyes,
and I learned that sometimes things hurt, but it is all right to cry.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw that you cared
and I wanted to be everything that I could be.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I learned most of life’s lessons that I need to know to be a good and productive person when I grow up.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I looked at you
and wanted to say
“Thanks for all the things I saw when you thought I wasn’t looking”.
