Explore the value of Trust
I doubt that we can ever successfully impose values or attitudes or behaviors on our children certainly not by threat, guilt, or punishment. But I do believe they can be induced through relationships where parents and children are growing together. Such relationships are, I believe, build on trust, example, talk, and caring.
Trust each other again and again. When the trust level gets high enough, people transcend apparent limits, discovering new and awesome abilities for which they were previously unaware.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Finley Peter Dunne
Rachel Joy Scott
Relationships of trust depend on our willingness to look not only to our own interests, but also the interests of others.
Sean A. Frontz
I think that we may safely trust a good deal more than we do. We may waive just so much care of ourselves as we honestly bestow elsewhere. Nature is as well adapted to our weakness as to our strength.
Henry David Thoreau

Josh, SLC, UT

Just like a trust fall. You have to know how to trust the person that will catch you when you fall backwards. You are relying on them for their support.

Believe in someone and know that they can do it.
