to strive for extraordinary lives.
Such striving may seem admirable,
but it is the way of foolishness.
Help them instead to find the wonder
and the marvel of an ordinary life.
Show them the joy of tasting
tomatoes, apples and pears.
Show them how to cry
when pets and people die.
Show them the infinite pleasure
in the touch of a hand.
And make the ordinary come alive for them.
The extraordinary will take care of itself.
”William Martin, The Parent’s Tao Te Ching: Ancient Advice for Modern Parents
“Don’t compare your child to others. There’s no comparison between the sun and the moon. They shine when it’s their time.”
A child is like a butterfly in the wind. Some can fly higher than others, but each one flies the best it can. Why compare one against the other ?Each one is special each one is beautiful .
Remember, neither you can be a perfect mother nor your child can be a perfect son encompassing excellence in all fields of academics, sports or relation-wise. Everyone has to face different challenges, the situation differs from home to home. If you will think deeply, your two children will differ in their sets of abilities and skills. Just be proud of your children for what they are. Give them your love and strive to build a confident person out of your child.
