There are so many life lessons I want to pass on to my kids before they leave the nest. I have a long time to think about this — 11 years at least (longer, I hope). I want to make sure that they have the best start to life, using all the tools that they need to be productive and that they’re able to leave a positive mark on the world.
So, it really is step-by-step. If I looked at that big picture too long, it would be overwhelming — lessons about safety, some for life happiness, and others just because it would make them feel good. I think they’re all important and in the future, when I look at my adult children succeeding, I will know it’s in part the lessons, we as a family, have helped them cultivate.
