What is your parenting purpose? Many of us have vision or objective statements for our resumes. Some of us have one for our lives, a powerful thing to do to be sure. Check out this digital version of a life purpose by my twitter friend @MorganDayCecil. (LOVE IT!!!)
So why not have a special purpose statement to guide us in our parenting? Think of it as a map. It’s pretty useful to have a map when you’re driving somewhere new. And it really can be as simple. Here is mine, one line that I wrote about 2 years ago and it’s come in handy more than once:
To know and love my children so that they can better come to know and love themselves.
It’s simple, yet it says so much to me, and I love it. Now it’s your turn! Have fun with it. I hope you’ll write your own parenting purpose to guide you… and share it with us below!
