Hi everybody! I hope you guys are well. When I saw this pin (www.pinterest.com), I immediately saved it and thought to myself, “I have to frame this for my home so everyone can see it.”
I’m always telling/teaching my daughters that they should appreciate all that they have. My parents provided me with a home, clothes, food, and unconditional love. I never had a problem understanding boundaries and consequences. I knew exactly what would happen if I did something wrong so I just didn’t do it. For me, it was just that simple. I also knew that if I needed something it would be provided by my parents, but I never took advantage of that or them. I even went to a reasonably priced (since my parents were paying the tuition), nearby college (Lehman College in Bronx, NY) so I could commute without having to pay for room and board. I didn’t want to give my parents a college debt, especially since I really didn’t want to go, but I knew it was in my best interest. I can only hope that my daughters grow up with the same mentality with the exception of genuinely wanting to go to school and surpassing their own expectations.
Take good care all.
Until next time…
