I believe in being a positive example for not only my children, but the children that I come into contact with me.
I try to leave them with something positive that they can hold on to.
I've encouraged children to pursue their dreams and I've been a positive example to my own through my running.
I believe that all children should have a happy childhood. Period. They do not need the stresses that adults place on them.
It is extremely devastating to witness parents that are bad examples, parents whose selfish activities leave a negative mark on their kids. It's heartbreaking. These kids are wounded inside and out. These kids often hold their emotions inside and do not know who to turn to for support. They are destroyed inside. I've seen it first hand and my heart and soul cries out.
My biggest wish is that through my communication with them, they leave with something positive that they can hold on to when they go back to their world of heart ache, frustration, tears and emptiness.
All children should have a happy childhood and it's never too late.
