Take a moment, close your eyes, and visualize. See the loving shepherd tending his flock, gather the lamb and, carries the lamb in his arm and close to his heart. Gazing into the eyes of the lamb, the loves, the bonding that ties them together.
My girl is the little lamb. I am her shepherd. A shepherd herds, tends, and guards his flock; a shepherd protects, guides... So do I. I care for my child, protects, guides, and/or watches over my child as long as they need it. WOW! The power of pretend play!
Do you encourage pretend play with your children?
