Tuesday Writing Prompt – Raising young ones

Devereaux Frazier and Beth Amanda are currently hosting the Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge

Today’s prompt: Write a poem that uses the words negative, balance, and erosion.

Negative criticism undercuts their confidence 
You need to nurture their fledging and tender growth
Even when you correct them never be brutal and direct
For some messages can cause erosion of their self esteem
Raising young ones need a delicate balance between
Being just and kind
And wise and understanding
