This week, we close out the series on Raising Thriving Children with a few reflections and final thoughts. And the first comes straight from Stephen Covey: “Start with the end in mind.”
And then course-correct as you go! Because that is part of good navigation. It isn’t a straight path. Clarity of the destination is important. Being exactly on-track is not so important.
As you are going through those stages, remember this: Parenting is always toward your own obsolescence. Your task as a parent is to make yourself unnecessary (not absent, just not needed). We are here to raise self-sufficient, capable people. And that requires recognizing that parenting is toward obsolescence.
I provide 5 final thoughts in this week’s podcast.
