    Many progressives whom I have listened to describe themselves as Democrat socialist.

    Common sense, with the usual knife embedded in it. Motivation...it can and does have an ugly head to rear.

    "Peas from the same pod will grow very differently if one is tended with care within nurturing earth and one is cast aside on stony sand and left to wither."

    that's a total massacree of a paraphrase, but I hope one gets the idea...

    In my country then you might follow them Labor Party or they Greens or be Independent??
    .
    You are what you are, no more, no less. The fact is, that all is not what it seems to be, some may be great, some may be small, but to your own want to be free, I say, you never were not free. It is what your own Self, gave yourself to be in, that's what makes you what you are. Loving kindness be upon you and yours.

    Don't be so hard on yourself, dear!
    Whatever is true. Whatever is noble. Whatever is right. Whatever is lovely. Whatever is admirable. Anything of excellence and worthy of praise. Dwell on these things. Jesus Christ (I agree)

    I like this story, so true. You know, my nephew was sent off every day to a lady who loved him and was paid to look after him. He cried every day to leave his mum, till he went to school. My story was that he started off with a high IQ, but by then time he was 4 and had his IQ tested he had become a slow learner of about 80 something IQ and this was how his parents treated him for his entire schooling, and for me that last time I met him in 1993, he was a bit like a lump of lard. I see some parents of autistic who do everything they can for their children, and others who do precious little, yet tie government try to give them whatever they can afford under our National Disability Insurance Scheme. Grandparents can work wonders.

    You are what you are, no more, no less. The fact is, that all is not what it seems to be, some may be great, some may be small, but to your own want to be free, I say, you never were not free. It is what your own Self, gave yourself to be in, that's what makes you what you are. Loving kindness be upon you and yours.

    Truly Grandparents are and have always been in a position to be saving grace. Actually, my brother and sister-in-law have been filling that role for a long time. What isn't really related to your post Cearna, is the fact that my brother was a grandfather at 32 and and a great grandfather at somewhere in his early fifties. His line of people wasted no time at all.

    I'd put more importance on emotional intelligence:

    I bought Daniel Golemen's book for my husband when it came out. And I think my mom, too.
