The Best Thing to Teach Him

February 06, 2013
I think it's important to sit down and decide what you would like your child to learn from you. They are, after all, absorbing ever piece of information that comes their way, and you are the biggest influence in their little lives. I have been thinking recently about what kind of person I am, and what kind of person I hope my son will be:

I hope that my son will love his family, and realise how important they are.

I hope that my son will be good to everyone that he meets, and will use his manners no matter what situation he is in.

I hope that he will be good to the Earth, and everything that lives on it so that his children, and his children's children, will continue to have any amazing place to live.

I hope that he will work hard for what is important in life, and I hope that I will be able to teach him what is important in life; money and things are not among them.

Most importantly, I hope that I will be able to teach him what real love is, and how to have an amazing relationship with whomever he decides to share his life with -- and that it doesn't matter who you love.

This list could go on forever. Not many people purposely want to raise a child that is ungrateful and full of hate. But there are so many things to be done and taught, and we all know that parenting is a big crapshoot. I've learned recently to let things go, and allow my son to love life through each experience that he has. That's probably the best thing I could teach him.

What do you hope your child will learn from you?
