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.
