The Trifecta of Raising Children
As parents, we are a child’s first teacher and perhaps, the most impressionable one. We often hear that children “don’t arrive with a users manual”. And that’s a good thing! Who wants to stick to a given set of rules to raise their child? Every family is different, as is every child. A child is not your mini-me….they are their own person, an in-process being finding their own place in the world. However, as parents, it is our responsibility and goal to guide them to become HAPPY adults. “Happy” is all-encompassing in finding love, achieving success, and experiencing fulfillment. These are all unique to each individual.
Along with all the basic things we teach our children, including becoming functioning and contributing members to society, there are additional things we can teach them. It is the trifecta of raising an environmentally conscious child.
