When you think about raising a child the first question that might come to your mind is: will I do better than my parents?
It’s hard to say if that will happen. How will you measure it?
We are guided by our ego, by the desire to be great but in fact when we think about children we project our ego onto our children. That is the limit.
We should try to remove the constraints that left our bittersweet memories. We should not be angry for the stupid small things, children don’t care about things like money, after all. What they are after are the experiences, the extraordinary things in daily life.
One thing I loved about this topic is a dad that takes out his son on stormy days, because a good day shouldn’t be defined by the weather, but by what you do.
