Hidden in the ordinary patterns of each day is a network of life-giving relationships between young people and the adults that care for them. When a parent puts down the paper to talk to their son or daughter new things become possible. When a teacher, after disciplining a difficult pupil, enquires more gently about their home situation, they have moved into a sacred space where lives can be changed. This book is about those ordinary relationships, those objects of life that become pathways to personal growth and windows of insight.
