Speaking of being little…

It appears that, when it comes to parenting and steering and guiding children, it doesn’t matter into which culture you’re born.  I’ve personally done the “iron-hand-hold-walk-this-way” method of steering my children when they were in places of worship or formality.  It’s like a universal parent language.  Firm, but not constricting.  Commanding, not a suggestion.  Quiet, yet loudly speaking about what is right and wrong.  Physical touch can communicate so much.

    • Thanks. I found that, as I was seated on the floor, the children wandering around trying to keep themselves occupied were far more interesting than the ceremony itself. That is, until the bride and groom stood up and began four walks around the holy book.
