Posted by Liz Perraud at

Often the simplest things are the most important things--particularly when it comes to growing relationships with young people. May we never stop listening or seeing them. Enjoy this piece written by my dear friend Kim Flyr, a counselor and former school counselor and teacher. Seeing the Child in the Student On the first day of kindergarten, there is no lack of hope and joy walking in the front door of our schools.
