"Suffering is a natural part of life and we cannot eliminate it. What we can eliminate are the things we do to unnecessarily compound our own suffering, and the things we do to unnecessarily cause others to suffer. . . . When we offer our children our time, our affection, and our sense of optimism, we help them find a way through their own adversity, grief, and sorrow. They learn that they too can take an active part in determining what they will do with what life has handed them." -- From Parenting Through Crisis
