Aren't we all teachers to some degree?
Interesting word degree, because we all hope and wish that our children receive a degree or certificate of some kind.
We want to have our children and our family and friend's children pursue a career path which will give them opportunities and possibilities so that they can continue to sustain themselves financially!
How about socially and emotionally? Are we concerned about our children's emotional well being and their adjustment to certain situations along their journey of life?
Of course we are, that is why we take the time to listen to them, get to know their inner passions, their fears, their desires, their dreams and what makes them feel loved and appreciated! That is why we take the time to share in their creativity, their adventures, or their drive to want to make the world a better place.
Yes, we want them to earn a degree, but most of all, we want them to know that they are special just because and that no amount of trophies or money is needed to prove that.
