Food for thought

“I have come to the frightening conclusion, I am the decisive element in the home, It is my personal approach that creates the climate, It is my daily mood that makes the weather.

As a parent I possess tremendous power to make a child’s life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal.

In all situations, it is MY response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated, and a child humanised or de-humanised. ” H. Ginott
