Something Good

Filed under: Uncategorized,Workshops — San @ 10:04 pm
The story of the lion with the thorn in his paw reminded me of my morning, except the lion was my husband and the thorn was a tooth that needs extracted. We were in the dentist office when in walks three women, one with a baby. The young woman with the baby smiles at me, says hello, and begins to hug me. I tell her “What a compliment to get a hug!“

I recognize the face as one of my former high school students (when I worked as a school counselor with Harrisburg School District) but cannot remember her name. It doesn’t matter as she proceeds to present her baby for me to admire. The baby boy has a strong sounding male name and already his left ear is pierced. The baby spits up as she balances him on her shoulder. She scurries off towards the other women for help. Luckily the waiting room had a box of tissues as she had no burping cloth, only a blanket wrapped around him.

Seeing my former student with her baby stirs my passion…of course I’m passionate about my husband and his being healthy but I am also passionate about parenting education. I want to help parents grow great, healthy families! I want to do more good.

I am in the process of finding locations to schedule Becoming a Love and Logic Parent® workshops. If you know of a location with DVD/TV access for hosting a workshop, please contact me as soon as possible. For parents willing to host a workshop series in the privacy of their own home along with four or more other paying parent friends or family, the host parents are not charged any workshop fees.

It really is a compliment to me to be hugged by a former student. As Maria in the Sound of Music sings, “I must have done something good.”
