In recent times “HOW to parent” has become so important, that we have forgotten “WHY we are parenting.”
What do we really want for our children?
If the answer is success and happiness – What is success? And what really brings us happiness?
With every generation the definition of success and happiness changes.
Will our children really consider topping the entrance exams as success?
Will winning with blinkers on, truly make them happy?
If we look at the millennial way of living – that values experiences more than things , it seems unlikely.
So why not stop looking for the shore and start enjoying the swim?
Life is in the journey and not in the destination.
If we start enjoying every moment instead of living for a time when we have “finished”parenting and can step back and admire our creation - Will it make parenting easier?
I think it will. What about you?
