To the educator who is struggling, I say, “This is what this child needs. If you’re not listening to him, then please listen to me. I’m his voice.”

To the parent or grandparent who is struggling, “You have rights. You have a voice. There are people who will speak with you and for you.”

To my grandchild who is struggling, I say, “God made you, God gave you to me, and He gave me to you. Look what we’ve done with that!”
