it's no secret that i tell people...
1) i'm raising global children, not local children
2) i'm raising leaders not followers
3) i'm raising thinkers and doers
4) men not boys in men's bodies
from their own mouths, so far i have an architectural engineer (age 12), a chef (age 12), a game designer (age 11), a rock star (age 4) and an artist (age 4). will they become these things? doesn't matter! the point is they are thinking about their futures! not lost in the woods or falling into the stereotypes set before them. anyone can offer anything but that doesn't mean they have to partake of it. they understand choices.
i've caught myself daily telling anyone who will listen that i have good kids. you know what? i REALLY do!!! i thought all this time i was teaching them but guess who got schooled? LOL the lessons have been mine as i continue to learn from the wise. do not discount the children because they are unexpected teachers.
