Like Dorthy and her companions on their journey to find the Wizard of Oz, some people including myself were sent and then sent my child off in life hoping they will find their hearts, their minds, their courage, their magic, their way back home. Rather than being nurtured, encouraged, and having our and their natural resources developed, not always have we been or are they in enviornments in which we have been able to or are they able to thrive, respond and change ourselves or our children themselves. Like us our children become convinced they must change the very nature of who they are. Spells are cast that shrivel their belief in their own minds.
It's a tragedy, for the most essential ingredient for success as a learner of anything is self esteem, and self esteem is built by trusting your mind to accomplish what is releveant in your life...being self-reliant.
