At NWE School, we see ourselves as co-parents. Here is a poem by Shakta Kaur Khalsa. 

Clouds of Light

They look so small and frail
but they are so great and magnificent.
They are born of the same womb
that birthed the cosmos and knitted together the galaxies. 
If you could see them as they truly are,
you would be astounded.
You would see not little children,
but dancing clouds of light,
energy in motion,
swimming in an ocean of love.

They are so much more
than what you see
as are you

Life can seem mundane 
But it is not.
Children can seem ordinary,
and troublesome,
and fragile.
But they are not.
You may feel alone,
and separated,
and powerless.
But you are not.
