Imagine that your child comes home at 25-years-old with her best friend. Everyone is sitting at the table and your child’s best friend ask your child to describe you in one word.
What would your child say? What word would she use?
What do you as a parent want that word to be?
Are you the person you want your child to describe?
How are you demonstrating this value every day?
What actions do you take in relationship with your child that support who you want to be?
The golden nugget of parenting advice? Decide. Decide who you want to be and take the time and make a plan to be that person and practice. Run every decision through this value and practice every day.
