“There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colours are brighter, the air softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever again. – Elizabeth Lawrence.
What are your own personal childhood memories like?
What kind of memories do you have of your Dad and Mum while you were a child growing up?
“Childhoods never last. But everyone deserves one.” – WENDY DALE, Avoiding Prison and Other Noble Vacation Goals.
One thing I adore tremendously about parenting is this: it gives one the rare and unique privilege to a second chance at childhood! So, no matter your childhood experiences, as a parent you have the chance to create the same, if pleasant, or a different, if unpleasant, childhood experiences for your child/children and re-experience or re- live it with them.
“In the happiest of our childhood memories, our parents were happy, too.” – Robert Brault (rbrault.blogpost.com)
It is an opportunity to create the childhood experiences you desire for both yourself and your kids. Don’t ignore or throw away this rare opportunity in the name of building a career or earning a livelihood. Remember even with a great career and a tedious 9 to 5 you can parent effectively you just need self-discipline, intent, commitment, consistency and persistent actions.
When parenting is a Legacy, creating positive experiences for you and your kids is not just a choice. It becomes the only option! So, make time and give you and your kids the childhood of their wildest dreams!
“Childhood is the most beautiful of all life’s seasons.” – Author Unknown.
Make it memorable both for you and your child! Fill it with loads of pleasant and positive experiences! You owe your kid that much.
“Childhood is the world of miracle or of magic: it is as if creation rose luminously out of the night, all new and fresh and astonishing. Childhood is over the moment things are no longer astonishing. When the world gives you a feeling of “déjà vu,” when you are used to existence, you become an adult.” – EUGENE IONESCO (Present Past / Past Present.)
