Don’t laugh too hard.
Stop doing that.
Don’t behave like that.
Talk like that. Be this way.
We’re always telling our kids what they should and shouldn’t do. Their life becomes a rulebook instead of a blank slate with infinite possibilities.
What if we taught our kids how to think?
What if we allowed them to create another path, instead of wishing them to walk on a replica of where we went?
The best thing to teach our kids is teaching them how to think.
And then trust them to figure things out.
