They Think the World of You
“When people think the world of you, be careful with them.” (Margaret Cho)
Caring for a child is a tremendous financial responsibility, to be sure. But it’s the emotional responsibility that is even more significant in the long run. Even though your children would probably not ever tell you this truth, it still exists: you are the most influential person in their life and the relationship you have with them will affect them forever.
Sure, at some point, kids realize that you aren’t perfect and that you are only human. That’s a very healthy thing for them to know. But they always want to think the world of you. Give them good reason to do so and take your responsibility to them as seriously as you can.
