Children are people,
Like adults they have feelings.
No matter their age,
They are human beings.
Listen to them.
Let them know that you care.
Lend them your ear.
And for them just be there.
You may not understand the issues brought up.
Silly drama to you or school-house gossip.
Remember that children have little lives.
Small problems to you are big in little eyes.
You were once young, however long ago.
You wanted to be heard.
You wanted a hero.
