What's happening?

Expectations can get in the way of seeing what is really happening.

  1. Jah love. Give thanks and praises for sharing. This is sooo true. I expected my children to learn to read and write and to do other cognitive tasks as quickly as possible. And I found the process to be frustrating and unnerving. I tried to overdo the "teaching" and that caused a lot of problems for us. I wanted my children to feel loved and to thrive on the love that I felt for them. Unfortunately, that was not the result. In the end, the stresses of daily life as a 2nd generation transnational Haitian American Nyabinghi Rastafari were too much. I know that if given the opportunity, I will do better. And I am thankful for this blog in helping me to see the light. Blessed love.
