Sestina

Quite often it seems we tell kids, it’s best to be first They sign up for fun; parents, it seems, for the fame Whether it’s academics or sports, why not just let kids thrive? Create environments for learning and fun needed to thrive Nurture with affection and love; be their springboard first Build the foundation they will need to handle future fame A solid foundation will ensure an easy adjustment to fame In any circumstance, self- assurance makes anyone thrive Teach them, the game of life is not won by coming in first Good character first, may lead to fame in which anyone can thrive ~*~

How true. I agree that character is necessary to handle fame. Perhaps becoming a person of character is more important than being well known or popular. I can tell you put some serious thought into this.

True words of wisdom, Annalise...Parents' so-called 'good intentions' often go awry and we seem to forget that a child just being and feeling loved is the key - Tim
