A Star Comes to Shine
Parents and children now
by Meenakshi Suri
Children aged 2 weeks, 2 months, 2 years or 20….
I’m sure you have experiences aplenty!
Does being a parent consume, annoy, fascinate?
Are all these familiar as different states?
And what of the child?
That being of contrasts who brings us
face to face with reality
Who is born at once wise and dependent…
So assertive of needs
Semingly unaware of self
How can the most difficult job in the world
be entrusted to the untrained arms of any parent?
