"As I Grow"

As I grow please...Understand that I am growing up and changing very fast. it must be difficult to keep pace, but please try.

As I grow please...Listen to me and give me brief, clear answers to my questions. Then I will keep sharing my thoughts and feelings.

As I grow please...Reward me for telling the truth, Then I am not frightened into lying.

As I grow please...Tell me when you make mistakes and what you learned from them. then i can accept that i am O.K, even when i blunder,

As I grow please..Pay attention to me and spend time with me. Then I can believe that I am important and worthwhile.

As I grow please... Do the things that you want me to do. Then I have a good, positive role model.

As I grow please...Trust and respect me. Even though I am smaller than you, I have feelings and needs, just like you.

As I grow please... Compliment and appreciate me. then I will feel good and I will want to continue to please you.

As I grow please...Help me explore my unique interest, talents, and potential in order for me to be happy, i need to be me and not you or someone you want me to be.

As I grow please...Be an Individual and create your own happiness. Then you can teach me the same and I can live a happy, successful and fulfilling life.

THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME!
