When you’re a kid and want to learn a new skill, don’t ask your parents
I want to believe that the best thing that you can do for your children is to teach them everything they need to know, even when it’s not the best way to learn, but I can’t.
And I want my kids to know that you should do that as well.
When they’re young, it can feel like the best part of school is the learning experience.
But when your kids grow up and move on to college or to work, it’s time to put aside the fun of learning for a while and put their interests first.
The best thing you can say to your kids is that “yes, you can learn a skill, but it’s the best one.”
And I know I will have more fun with my children, because it’s a part of my job.
But I also know that I have to give them the best learning experience possible.
So if I’m able to be a little more proactive and let them choose their own path, I’ll be even happier.
And as I’ve written before, it doesn’t matter how much I’m trying to teach my children that you have to work for your kids.
The key is that you are their parent.
So make sure you give them everything you’ve got, including the best possible teachers, even if it means they’ll have to do some of the hard work themselves.
