This morning I was looking at an old journal entry. Here is what it said;
“We are trying to teach Hope to sleep in her own bed. In April she will be five years old. She is used to sleeping with us. The other night we had her stay in her own bed in the girl’s room. She was not happy. She was crying so I went into her room and said; “Why are you crying, Hope?”
She said, â€˜I don’t like sleeping in here. I don’t want to sleep in here. I don’t get any attention.'”
I know how she feels. I hate it when I don’t get any attention.
No matter what their age, paying attention to people is a powerful thing – it is a very powerful thing. Try it. People will love you for it.
