As parents we can’t know everything, all the answers, or foresee what our children will be doing, where they will be going, and what they are thinking. Worst of all, not only do we not know what we don’t know but our children don’t either … and they are potentially unaware of this.
How do we as parents deal with all of this uncertainty, how can we prepare our children for this and not fail them? The solution – give them the tools to ensure their own preparedness. Open their eyes, expand their minds to what is out there so that they can make their own value driven, well thought through, and clear decisions. Don’t feed them, give them a fishing rod, reel, line, hook and teach them how to cast.
