Golden Nugget

The golden nugget of parenting advice that I would give to other parents would be make parenting fun. It is fun. It’s a great experience. There is no better experience that I’ve ever had in my life than my role as a parent. It’s important that you empower your child. It’s important that you teach them from early on to stand on their own two feet and to advocate for themselves. That’s the greatest gift you can give them. They will not be a success in life, be it in relationships, be it in work, be it in friendships, unless they can speak on their own behalves and stand on their two feet. Don’t fight their fights for them. Help them fight their fights, but don’t fight them for them.
