“When you teach your son, you teach your son’s son.” (The Talmud)
Parenting is really, really hard. It requires us to be constantly evolving and open to change. There are days when the last thing in the world you may want to do is focus on yourself and stretch in order to grow. It seems like those are inevitably the days when our kids just know to push our buttons! It also seems like those are the days when you start to wonder if you’re not taking this whole parenting thing a little too seriously.
On those days, think of this quote. By showing our kids what being a grown up is really all about, we are shaping generations. We are creating a world where there can be a little more peace and understanding. When you think of that, the hard times seems like maybe they’re worth it after all.
