We parents have the privilege and duty to raise our kids to be thoughtful, kind, responsible people who can navigate life's challenges in our eventual absence. What do you do when you feel less than equipped to be your child's life coach?
Jumpstart some conversations with some good reads. Hear others' stories to learn from their mistakes and successes. Learn the value of persistence and creativity by reading biographies of great men and women. Experience how a little act of kindness can have a ripple effect making a difference in others' lives.
Observe and listen to our own kids, each made beautifully in their own way, and guide them gently. Let the men and women who changed the world be their friends inspiring them to greatness.
