Little ones walk complex paths
Some experiences so adverse
Limbic brakes are activated
Outlooks then brittle or terse.
So much weight on their shoulders
In their emotional backpack
We can lighten these pressing loads
It’s the least we can give back.
Get to problems before entrenched
Each child deeply understand
Know when brakes are activated
And how best to lend a hand.
Be patient and understanding
Connected to the why and how
Ask, “What is it that
Your brain needs right now?”
Lay foundations for entering school
But the message across the nation
Should be empowering little minds
And not just schoolification.
