Please understand I am growing up
and changing very fast.
It must be difficult to keep pace with me, but please try.
Please reward me for telling the truth.
Then I am not frightened into lying.
Please tell me when you make mistakes
and what you learned from them.
Then I can accept that I am okay,
even when I blunder.
Please pay attention to me
and spend time with me.
Then I can believe that I am important
Please help me explore my unique interests,
talents and potential.
In order for me to be happy,
I need to be me.
Please do the things you want me to do.
Then I have a good, positive model.
Please tell me by your words and actions
that you love me.
Then I will feel loveable and will be able
to love myself and others.
