I have read that children between the ages of three and eight begin to acquire the sense of self they will come to know as their own being AND those that acquire sense of self later in the teenage years will suffer from emotional distress because of it. Wow! Doesn't that sentence make our jobs as parents of young children sound important! It IS important!
We've really been working on filling up this "sense of self"...connecting "self" with Choosing to Love God and Choosing to Love Others.
This video makes me smile! I know it makes God smile too!
