When my children were little they attended a public school which was high on teaching affirmations. At the time it was something that my children learned by rote; memorizing the words to recite at will with the ultimate goal of understanding the creed and what it meant. Today, I realize it was and still is something that not only stuck with them in their unconscious memories (like reciting your A-B-C's), it lay the foundation to help them maneuver through todays social challenges of everyday life. As my daughter always says "sharing is caring", so read on and consider including it in your daily life!
