  1. Loved your quotes Mey.
    Yes the love of parents and children cant be explained, when you become a parent you need to give yourself as the present all the time, and you keep giving; more importantly you need to change yourself before you change a child, and you must get ready to hear the truths from the child and that all these help you to you grow as a person.
