Reflections — Reap What You Sow

This episode is part of the “Reflections” series of podcast episodes, which are short, minutes long reflections about a quote or other thought from Dr. Shinichi Suzuki’s philosophy or writing. The purpose of these reflections is to give parents and teachers a chance to spend a few minutes thinking about how great the impact might be on the world and our children with merely a slight moment of reflection about a behavior, thought, or attitude.

This episode discusses the concept that parents will reap later the seeds of what parents sow today. Discontent, arrogance, or insensitivity? Kindness, gentleness, compassion? This episode discusses the power of the choice of which seeds to plant.
