"Every parent must be two things: a parent and a person. As a parent you are a link in an ongoing chain of existence, which means that you must subordinate your interests to something higher. But parents are still people in their own right, and as such you must also work to realize your own dreams and ambitions. A good parent balances these two roles without sacrificing one to the other. "
"When the house is boring, a kid will go elsewhere for excitement and before long, your parental role will be reduced to that of a cop. Your authority over your children will be dictated by bribery and threats rather than by inspiration and affection.
Is that why you had kids? So you could spend your life sniffing out lies and enforcing curfews? Instead embrace your inner preschool teacher, your inner clown, your inner preacher, your inner cruise director – in short, make the home as fun, inspiring, exciting and joyful as you possibly can. Then you'll be able to put the billy club and handcuffs down for good."
"Our spouse and our kids deserve the very best we have, not what's left over after our boss and our hobbies have depleted us."
Today's Soul Wave...outside of just "being" in Family Day moments today, engage your family in deeper conversations about what you each want, need and what amazing adventures you'd like to plan for the future.
