Sometimes it's hard taking her with me everywhere especially to our Longhouse, (because she sometimes gets disruptive), but she won't learn anything if I left her at home with a sitter. She is learning how to sit still and be quiet when that is needed. Everyone knows her in our community because she is with me wherever I go. Everyone claims her as their grandchild, niece, sister/cousin etc. For as long as I live (and I hope that's long enough to see my great grandchildren) I will continue to teach her and help her in her life.
Good job to all the parents and grandparents out there teaching your children a good way of life, it will be with them always.
Right on Kakeeya.
