Holding my newborn son in my arms for the first time was the most wonderful experience. I felt so proud, so blessed to be a part of such a miracle and overwhelmed with an enormous wave of love for him.
Since then I have given birth to an equally wonderful daughter, they are now 12 and 8 and they are, without a doubt, my best teachers. Motherhood has been quite a steep learning curve and an exhilarating adventure, one that has enriched my life in so many ways.
This is what I now know:
At Chiltern house forum, children are taught to express themselves through drama and speech in order to build their confidence and become their own teachers in learning.
Our children are our greatest teachers. They let us see the world, once again, through the eyes of a child, they help us look at things from another point of view, but most of all they enable us look at ourselves honestly. Nothing has taught me more about myself and life than my journey as a mother.
