Learning for a Lifetime

Do not confine your children to your own learning, for they were born in another time. –Hebrew Proverb

 And it goes along that this means, sooner or later our children are going to teach us something. While I have approached parenting in this way since the moment my pregnancy began, I’m not particularly worried about heeding the wisdom of this proverb while my kid lives under my roof. But as the years wear on and I become more entrenched in my own ways of being, I may find it difficult to remember that my kid may very well know better than me on all sorts of topics. And so it seems that a reminder to listen to my kid (once he is an adult), and try to do what he says, should be on my list for growing old gracefully.

    I think this is something that sort of naturally happens but what a wonderful thing to remember: that we’re capable of learning from all (including kiddos (whether adults or not))!
