My Journey

in shades of grey

I wish I could claim this as my own, but I found it. I still think that it makes some great points that can sometimes be easy to lose sight of.

Integrity, compassion, courage-
These aspects of you child's character push the values in his mind into actions. Values without heart are useless.

Encourage experiences where you chld will interact with and see things firsthand. Better yet, model them.

Focus on who you want your child to be at age 40, not 19.

Your job is not to raise and Ivy Leaguer, but to shape the parent of your grandchildren.
