I bet you used to hear that from parents as often as I did while growing up. I bet that now, you know how they felt.
You send them to school, monitor their progress, and guide them as best you can. But there are lots of highly educated folks in the world still struggling.
You try your best to discipline them.. to teach them the value of hard work, and living right. You know that this gives them a better chance in life. But the world’s hardest workers remain poor. They never get to reap the benefits of their labor.
And when things take a turn for the worse in your own life… a bad economy… a relationship that’s not working the way it should.. a position on the job you deserved that was given to someone else… it’s really tough sometimes. And so many things are beyond your control, no matter what you do, it might still be even harder for your children.
Well here’s the thing. It doesn’t have to be that way. There might be a way to give them a better shot.
