    Parental Wishes: Prioritizing Your Children’s Needs

    If I’m being honest, I haven’t met anyone yet whose parents, in some way, haven’t messed them up at least a tiny bit. And as much as it sucks, us children are the ones who have to pick up the pieces as we grow into adulthood, and it becomes a responsibility whether or not we pass our parental baggage down to our own children.

    Even though it can be extremely difficult to break the cycle, it most certainly can be done. That said, parents, I want to know what you teach or do for your kids that your parents never did for you, or that you wish they did for you.

    Maybe your parents never showed up for you, so you make sure you attend all of your kids’ events, shows, games, and everything in between. Not only do you show up, but you make sure your kids know you’re excited, engaged, and completely supportive.

    Maybe you never had home-cooked meals growing up, so you prioritize having family dinners and spending time at the dinner table.

    Or perhaps you never had the chance to fully experience your childhood, but now you strive to create amazing memories with your own children. You take them to trendy parks, theme parks, arcades, and other exciting locations where they can fully embrace their youth.
