The Children Lead

How is it that we allow the agendas of others to occupy our childrensā€™ minds? Is it possible that a stranger can know our child better than we do? Is there anything a baby needs to learn that canā€™t be taught by being held in a parentā€™s arms? Because my childrenā€™s eyes and ears and thoughts are on me every day, they are key players in my ongoing efforts to live a right life. I count on their eyes and ears and thoughts to shore me up during times of temptation. They always lead me home.
