Word of Encouragement

If this is your child, thank you for preparing your child to be a valuable, contributing adult.  In this day and age, I find this quite encouraging.

There should be more children like that -- I'd like to meet his parents -- they're the ones that should take credit for this child.

BIG accolades to this young person!

This young person is a marvel...his parents should be proud of him. I only hope that others would follow his example.

If only more young people and adults had this mind set what a better world this would be! So many live beyond their means!

How inspiring. We raised our children by setting this example but somehow they missed some of the finer points:) They are both OK now, thank God!

Amen, hooray, and God bless the child!!! I wish a lot more young people would realize that they are not SUPPOSED to start off in life with everything their parents have worked all their lives for. Being a "poor student" is half the fun of getting to where you want to be in life. I would not trade that experience for the world! I scraped by, worked hard, sacrificed...it is the right way to grow up! My own child has always refused to ride the coattails of my husband or parents, even though it would have assured him a much easier life. Easy was not what he wanted, though. He wanted to "feel" life. It was hard to watch sometimes, but I'm glad he went that route and marched to the beat of his own drum. The parents of this kid deserve congratulations, as well. They raised a child with common sense and values.

And isn't that the way it is supposed to be?
Can you imagine the people who live near that park in NY listening to that drumming constantly/ Their children can't sleep, are afraid to leave the buildings.
