As parents or guardians we want the best for our children. We want our children to lead and be successful, however, our control and love for them sometimes gets in the way. We should let our beloved children be more independent. Trust is the best support we can provide them.
Our children are our assets, but they are not our properties. Independent minded people are more able to succeed or go further by learning how to stand and walk for themselves. If we want to catapult our seeds we should dare them rather than regulate them.
May I remind us parents or guardians that nurturing is not programming but development. What I want to express on this important responsible matter is that of our control of our beloved children. Yes, we have the right to discipline and also the right to dream for our children, but they also have the right to be free. Freedom to think and be themselves is one of the greatest issues that our children face today.
Why give them the ability to be independent? The brain is the most important asset of everyone and everyone should learn how to use. Everyone is unique and have their own calling and that everyone should listen to their inner voices rather than dictations. They will be happier and study shows that if they are not strictly controlled they will not rebel. Wisdom is knowing how to think.
So, we should build rational than emotional relationship with our children. Let's consider what is best for them even if it doesn't follow our own desired plans. Let our children be themselves rather than invent who they are. If we aim to build a more advance future we need self-governing leaders.
