‘In every age, children are our treasures —the vital link in the chain of humanity’
DO NOT ASK YOUR CHILDREN TO STRIVE
The start of the school year has felt anything but ordinary for all of us who are parents in this extraordinary year. In this poem, William Martin reminds us just how much fashionable thinking often misses the point. It comes from his book The Parent’s Tao Te Ching: Ancient Advice for Modern Parents, an absorbing and reassuring read.
Do not ask your children
to strive for extraordinary lives.
Such striving may seem admirable,
but it is a way of foolishness.
Help them instead to find the wonder
and the marvel of an ordinary life.
Show them the joy of tasting
tomatoes, apples, and pears.
Show them how to cry
when pets and people die.
Show them the infinite pleasure
in the touch of a hand.
And make the ordinary come alive for them.
The extraordinary will take care of itself.
