I believe that children need a viable environment to grow into healthy adults. I’m not talking about a huge house or fancy things. Children need to be able to feel comfortable in their own skin.
This is provided by parents who encourage their kids to explore who they are deep down. They need personal freedom to choose the things they like. To question their environment. To figure out what they want and who they want to be.
As parents, our job us to guide them along their journey to discovering exactly this. In order for us to successfully achieve this we must have a clear vision of who we are otherwise our children will wander aimlessly their entire lives. Guide your children to self-discovery, and enjoy the ride.
