    I think a lot of parents deal with the fact that they think they know what is best for their children. You have to let your child live and expand on his/her own. You are just there to provide a little steering so they are not headed down a path of poor decisions.



    This is bad, whether you have one child or more. Pressuring your kid to have only straight A’s, to have a lot of extracurricular activities and to create bonds with kids that are equal to him will mess up his childhood and even his adult life. You have to support your child and to make sure he learns as much as he can, without him feeling like he’s forced into it.

    I’ve come to the conclusion, that what I want for my son, is not what he wants. And I am ready to let him choose what he wants to do with his life. I never wanted to hold him back or anything, and I’m glad he is interested in so many things. It really feels like he’s got his life already planned out. It’s quite nice!
