The Best Parents Have the Longest Time Horizon
By: Lifebook VIP Members Joshua and Margie Boswell
The wise parent realizes that the average life span of a human being is currently pushing over 80 years, and we only get to closely parent our little ones for about 20 of those years.
Our greatest concern should be preparing them for those 60+ years that they are outside of our home and immediate influence.
So, the wise parent looks ahead and constantly asks things like...
* How will my choices today affect the life of my child when they are no longer with me?
* What can I do today to prepare them for a life of happiness, joy, and rejoicing?
* How will I empower and equip them to manage life’s stresses, challenges, and setbacks?
* What can I do today to help them feel comfortable with their own greatness and power?
