Live, Love, and Learn (4/25/16)


Are you a good parent? If so, your kids will eventually be angry with you.

“If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.” – Bette Davis

At some point, you will make a decision that is in the best interest of your child and that he or she completely disagrees with. Hence, your child will be extremely displeased with you. In fact, that displeasure might even turn into a form of hatred. But fear not: The hatred is temporary, and our kids are better off if we are more interested in doing what’s best for them than pleasing them. It is far easier in the short run for your kids to never be angry with you. In the long run, however, they will benefit by your willingness to occasionally tick them off.
