Peaceful Parenting

Peaceful Parenting

Do unto others
As you would have done unto you
Is good advice for grown-ups
and good for children too.

There’s no need for yelling
To get your point across
Screaming is never healthy
Even if you’re the boss.

Treat every human gently
Especially the young
Watch how you use your hands
And how you use your tongue.

Little people learn
From the things that grown-ups do
If we want them to be peaceful
Then we must be peaceful too.

I want to do things differently
Than my parents did
I never yell or rant or scream
Towards adults or kids.

I was raised by bullies
In a toxic little world
I would never wish that life
On another little girl.

I want my kids to listen
I don’t want them to fear
If I treat them with respect
Then we all shed fewer tears.

Life is not always perfect
But our home is drama-free
I nurture my young like branches
On a healthy family tree.

One day I hope with fondness
That my kids will lead the way
To their own peaceful family settings
Like the home they have today.
