How Can We Best Prepare Our Children to Meet Life’s Challenges?
As parents, grandparents, relatives, and educators, we all want the best for the children in our lives. We want them to be successful in life.
Unfortunately, in too many cases, our overzealous intentions and actions may not always be “the best” for them, in the greater scheme of things.
It’s too easy to forget that what we want for them may (or may not be) what they want for themselves!
Therein lies the ultimate quandary in raising children to express their greatest gifts and talents throughout their lives, to lead lives of joy, happiness, fulfillment, and meaning.
Clearly, success is much more than a good job, financial security, a nice home, and social status.
So what then is the definition of success?
“Success is achieving what one really wants.” – J. Donald Walter, Education for Life: Preparing Children to Meet the Challenges
