“I want you to be happy”

When I cradled her in my arms in the delivery room at Watford General, I silently wished her happiness.

And now, as my daughter approaches the end of her schooling and contemplates university, I was struck by this item in the Guardian online.

I got it very right, and very wrong. Most of us do. But so long as you keep this in mind and we, the teachers of your children, keep this in mind, perhaps we won’t do such a bad job together.
