Always Kiss Me Good-Night is a precious book about how children think parents should raise them.
J.S. Salt, in an attempt to be a better parent (and to produce a lovely book), asked 1,000 children to complete the following statement:
“If I could tell my parents how to raise me, I’d tell them ‘_____.'”
The children’s answers speak to their desire to simply have their parents spend time with them.
To let them explore, play in nature, and get dirty.
To be loved and cherished and to have their parents “Snugel me up in your arms.”
To take care of them.
For a good reminder of what parenting is and can be, check out “Always Kiss me Good-Night.”
