Your family loves you a great deal,
Super happy, they’ll make you feel.
Your family is really fun to be around.
They’ll joke around and make a funny sound.
With your family you could play,
every single sunny day.
I’m sure they are a lot of fun,
in the park when you guys run.
Just remember one more thing,
with your family, you could sing.
Oops, one more thing. I must remind
love them dearly and be kind.

Difficulties are meant to rouse, not discourage. Difficulties can be character building for the child. It’s neither possible nor desirable for parents to always shield their child from the knocks that school (and life) will produce. When difficulties arise, try to persuade the child to adopt a positive approach to solving the problem – this is how they grow and develop.
