Our children are our future, and our today is their past. My Grandfather tried to Mould my Dad into something he didnt want to do. Consequently my Dad rebelled, did what he wanted to do, and never spoke to his Dad for 15 years. Sadly, It wasn’t until my Grandad was on his death bed that they finally burried the hatchet. By that time it was to late.
So guide your child. but let them choose their own path in life. You may not always agree with their choices, but ultimately only they can make their own mistakes and learn from them. Its just part of life.
