They told me that the kids give their phones to the parent to record a video, and then when they get the phone back THE CHILD ADDS THE CAPTIONS Once I found this out I felt so sad. So sad that any child would think their parent thinks those things about them. I tell my child "I love you even ...

Even Though

There are few phrases that are as powerful for establishing mindset as the phrase “Even though...”

The puddle and the lake

If you throw a stone into water, it makes a ripple.  The size of the ripple is the same, whether you throw the stone in a lake, or in a puddle.
