Let them be...

The trick is knowing how to let them be children and knowing when to teaching them to be adults.

Being a Parent doesn't mean being your child's adversary. You can be their friend and they will work to earn your respect and love.

support and inspiration

As a parent our job is to inspire our children to reach for the stars, but in a positive way. Praising their achievements however small and holding back all the negative criticism, even when we think they could have tried harder. As we support and inspire our children along the way, we are building on their strengths and not focusing on their weak spots.
