“It’s not only children who grow. Parents do too. As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can’t tell my children to reach for the sun. All I can do is reach for it, myself,” – good parenting quote by Joyce Maynard.
Teaching by example is the best way to convey a message to a child. When children see their parents succeed in their career, marriage, and friendships, kids are inspired to succeed in their own endeavors. Too frequently, parents set goals for their children and expect them to follow a pre-selected path. But the high expectations do more damage than good. Good parenting advice: help children acquire the life skills they will need to succeed, encourage them to follow their dreams, and be an inspiration to them by setting and accomplishing your own goals.
