As parents, we all want the absolute best foundation for our children so that they grow into happy, functional adults who can contribute positively to their community and society as a whole. A big part of this foundation is school.
Lately, I’ve felt very frustrated with the state of the education system that my children are stuck with. Don’t worry, this post is not going to be a rant about all the issues I’m concerned with. I know many of parents local to me already share my views, so why preach to the choir! Instead, when one of my children comes home feeling frustrated and helpless, I want to be armed with some inspirational quotes to help them see past their current problem and focus on the big picture. So without further adieu, here’s the quotes.
