End of the year school presentation
To close out the school year, Namine and her class presented some of the things they learned.
Balancing honesty and kindness
Namine explained to me her thoughts on honesty as it pertains to other people’s feelings.
It’s okay to not be okay
Namine and I are reading a book in school called “Homesick: My Own Story.” It’s about a girl named Jean who lives with her parents in China. Jean had a baby brother, who was born six weeks early and passed away a few days after he was born.

Namine explains her viewpoint on a doctor’s responsibility.

Parents are not perfect. We make mistakes. It’s important to own up to those mistakes in front of our children.
