Let’s face it… being a parent can be extremely hard. It’s hard knowing what the right thing to do and the wrong thing to do is, sometimes.
Luckily we all have quite a few years of experience that helps gives us some wisdom. If only that wisdom was easily given to our children and more importantly – easily accepted. I love this list by Thank Your Body on 31 life lessons she wants her daughter to know:
Even though I can’t (nor desire to) control you, I can hopefully teach you. As I look to your future I have many questions and concerns. I wonder how you’ll adapt to social pressures, maneuver through difficult circumstances, and mold your life with the unique and diverse experiences awaiting you.
I don’t pretend to know all the answers, but I do know that there are some things that matter more than others. My hope is that you can sift through the unimportant to help you create the life of your dreams… whatever they may be.
What life lessons would you add to this list for your children?
