What it is to Parent- In One Easy Picture

To Parent

To Parent

This is what it is to parent-
the giving of the genetics (biological or otherwise) of one’s heart to a child.

I loved this image- the helix indicating the “DNA” or “genetics” of the heart of the adult being passed on to child. I do not mean the biological passing along of DNA in this picture- I mean any adult who gives his or her heart to a child.

I liked how the heart of the child is bigger proportionally in relation to the child’s body. It made me think of the thymus gland, which is located in the chest near the heart and is bigger proportionally in children than in adults.
Perhaps children really do have bigger hearts:)
