I promise I will try…


To tell you what to do

Instead of what not to do


To teach you what words mean

Instead of Expecting you to read my mind


To reward good choices

Instead of Punishing You when I am frustrated


To Be More Patience

and Less Demanding


To celebrate our similarities

And respect our differences
