It's interesting how the timing of the world happens, or at the least how the timing of my learning happens.
I'm not sure if it's because I've been open to a particular subject or if the world just seems to be buzzing, and then my Facebook feed helps me find more stuff that I'm interested in...
Yesterday, I completed an article for A Dad's View about raising siblings of children special needs.
While in the article I alluded to some of the lessons in this video below, I'm humbled. I'm humbled by Connor, who along with his brother, Cayden, were named SI 2012 SportsKids of the Year.
When I wrote my article, I had very little answers on the best way to raise Violet in her situation (having two sisters with cerebral palsy). In fact, the point of the article was that I really didn't have to have the answers right now and that Violet was parenting me along the way.
Last night, I watched this wonderful, touching video (which is very short, by the way). The answers are right there. I'm always continuously learning more about just how amazing children are.
Some of the powerful words and thoughts Connor conveys about his brother with cerebral palsy remind me once again that children are our best teachers. Perhaps the folks in Washington D.C. should let them run our country for a few days!
Please watch this. It's beautiful.
