All parents want the best for their children. We have dreams for them. For some, it’s dreams of their child becoming a doctor or engineer. For others, it’s their child becoming an actor or a great musician. For others still, it’s keeping up the family tradition of graduating from college and pursuing a doctorate. All parents have expectations and have a deep desire for their child to fulfill these expectations. But, why do we want these for our children? What is it that we truly want for them? What is it that they truly want for themselves? It is to be happy & healthy, of course. If that is the case, then why do we not talk about it so much. Why don’t we educate our children on how to be happy and healthy? Schools don’t do it. Where and how will children learn?
