So, you have kids, right?
If you don’t…you could just skip this but, maybe it would be worth a read anyway. People who do not could also learn from it…just in case.
If you have identified yourself as a parent, but then you act as if you do not – the people around you might wonder what you’re thinking or why you did it and why you talk the way you do.
With kids, you have certain things that you to to make their lives better.
No matter what.
Let me outline a quick little list of ideas for you.
- You keep surprises secret until the surprise is ready to be shared.
- You boost their ego and build them up.
- You tell them that they can do anything they put their mind to achieving.
- You teach them what you have learned.
- You help them do things for themselves.
- You let them relax and de-stress.
- You share how important both math and science are to the world, but that the arts and humanities are also quite critical.
- You pass on your wisdom and then let them make their own decisions.
- You let them see you laugh and cry…both are important.
- You help them have confidence in their abilities.
- You share what you’ve done wrong and what you learned from those experiences.
- You help them to have fun, but also help them to understand that productivity is better than working hard.
There are a lot of responsibilities that come with having kids…some are more important and critical than others, and some of them are really hard. So, you have kids anyway and then, you do what you have to do…because it is the right thing to do. Not just for their life and their future, but for yours.
