An old friend had come home for lunch.
'Leave your child alone a lot,' he advised me.
'Talk to him less.
Let him become aware of the inner space.
He will enjoy it, trust me.
Don't bother about his education.
Let him learn things by himself.
He will make it, trust me.
Don't force feed him,
Let his stomach decide how much food it wants to digest.
He will grow, trust me.
Remember you are you.
Let him see you as you, not just his mother.
He will still love you, trust me.'
