Dear Parents:

May 14, 2013

Dear Parents,

Your job is not to be a dictator. Your sole job is to exhume the existing greatness of your children and prepare them to walk THEIR OWN PATH. That’s it! You are not designed to be an iron fist in the lives of your children. You are not designed to live vicariously through your children. Your children are separate beings. With their own paths. Their own destiny. Yes, they share your blood and chromosomes, however, you must realize that your purpose is not automatically linked to theirs. Gitcho own lives. Guide them. Prepare them. Nurture them. Submerge them in a village that will prepare them for something they cannot handle right now.

Sincerely,

A Child Who Wishes More Parents Would Get That Memo
