How to be a better parent? There is a Chinese proverb, it goes: “Do not confine your children to your own learning, for they were born in another time.” I remember clearly how I was told I had no future because I spend too much time gaming in front of the computer when I was learning how to code. The human mind treats a new idea the way the body treats a strange protein; it rejects it. Just because you do not understand something, it doesn’t mean it is useless and pointless.
Not all child must grow up to be a doctor, engineer, architect and more, they can be a computer engineer even when such courses yet to exist when they are a child. Support them, don’t belittle them, unless it is against the law or morally wrong. Respect must be earned, not by force.
To be in your children’s memories tomorrow. You have to be in their lives today.
Children learn more from what you are than what you teach.
Being a mother is learning about the strengths you didn’t know you had and dealing with fears you didn’t know existed.
If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
There is no such thing as a perfect parent. So just be a real one.
The best kind of parent you can be is to lead by example.
The best thing that you can give to your children is time.
Happiness is when you realize your children have turned out to be good people.
