Super Molly

Molly has come for crepes the last few weeks and each time she comes she draws a picture for the wall of the cafe. “I’m so good at doing art I can’t stand it!” she says. Yesterday she invented Molly Rockets Dipped in Chocolate, “It starts out chocolatey, and then the rocket takes off!”

“Community, can you watch my kid while I go to the washroom?” says her mom. I can’t tell you how moving it was to hear that. That she’s created a self-reliant trusting kid and we’ve created an environment she can trust, where kids can be themselves and know that all of the grownups are on their side.

I can’t wait for the day when all kids feel like they belong, everywhere.

  1. I’ve encountered parents who don’t believe that “it takes a village to raise a child”. Too bad. They’re missing out on help, reinforcement, differing points of view… To become integrated citizens, kids need to grow up being able to turn to the village, for help, for counsel, for friendship.

    • Linda – how right you are 🙂 Molly’s always had a huge, diverse extended family… her own little village. I love so much that HoH is another one of those beautiful places that you can find a village to join 🙂
