    A very nice post. This will really make a lot of positive changes in parenting.

      Thanks, Douglas. Clearly I can’t take credit for this one, as that all goes to SARK. But if it even made a small change, I’d be very happy. Mostly I’m working on changing myself.

    Great post. I love it. I needed this reminder.

    1. Michael Schmid

      Thanks, Laureen. There’s a fair bit of wisdom in there. 🙂

    Hi Michael.. For me, this is definitely awesome and I guess a lot of parents would find value in this list of ways we can really love our kids..

    1. Michael Schmid

      Yeah, we all can stand to have some reminders from time to time, Thalia. Thanks!

    Kissing the elephant… it’s not a metaphor, is it? Because if not, I’d be totally terrified to kiss one. 🙂

      While one could assign metaphorical meaning to her suggestion concerning “kissing the elephant,” I’m not going to touch that. I believe she literally means kiss an elephant… or do other things you’d not normally consider doing, terrified or not. 🙂
