Children are a wonderful gift. They are young and small persons, with minds and ideas, hating to be talked down to. They have an extraordinary capacity to see into the heart of things, and to expose sham and humbug for what they are.
Children learn about the nature of the world from their family. They learn about power and about justice, about peace and about compassion within the family. Whether we oppress or liberate our children in our relationships with them will determine whether they grow up to oppress and be oppressed or to liberate and be liberated.
