I came across this quote the other day and it really made me think about how important our jobs, as counselors, are when working with young children. We may not see the difference we make or the impact we may have on a child's life, but what we do IS important!!! This quote hits the nail on the head. It is essential that we work with children when they are young to help them grow into emotionally healthy adults.
Keep this thought in your mind on those crazy days when you think you are not making a difference or don't feel that you are doing enough. I think I will post this near my desk so I can be reminded daily that what I do matters and makes a difference!
