As parents we must always ask ourselves,
what sort of being do we wish to see our children evolve into.
Docile yes men or women?
Or thinking feeling reacting persons who can have agency in their lives. People who can resist addictions, and are awake enough change this crippled world?
If we want the latter – we best let go of the old slave/master methods of child rearing once and for all and learn to walk with our children through their childhoods with faith, compassion, community, amusement, boundaries and love.
