You can look forward to your child’s future if you prepare him for it. 

“We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt

In the above quote, FDR summarizes the reason why we as parents should feel anxious about our child’s future and the way by which we can feel peace about it. It would be a source of much joy if we could perfectly plan every detail of our child’s life, with happiness, peace, and safety neatly mapped out for them. But we can’t. What we can do is properly prepare them for all the unforeseen people and events that await them, both good and bad. Let’s raise our children as though their futures depend on it. Because they do.
