I love my son and I love the fact that he is my responsibility. This is especially true in our home and I can’t wait to have more time and space in our home to have the fun and games that he loves. I am also very grateful that he is my son and that I was the one who decided to build him a house.
A lot of my time and energy is spent in building some of the best schools and living on the land I love and am so proud of. I have a great job but I don’t have enough spare time to do that. I also have a lot of bad choices in my life.
While we’re on the subject of parental responsibility, this is also a difficult part of parenting, especially since we both have a lot of choice in where we live. I know that it’s hard to say no to my son or to our own kids, but I am glad that he has an open-door policy and that he can choose to live a life that is free from the burden of my decisions.
This is called the “parental imperative,” and it’s all the more necessary because of the ways in which we live in a society that is increasingly more divided. If we were perfect parents, we’d all just make our lives exactly the way we want to. But as we’ve seen in recent years, that’s not always the case.
The parental imperative is a concept introduced by author and educator Dr. Stephen R. Covey in his book Think and Grow Rich. It’s pretty self-explanatory but I thought it might be useful to explain. When we are in a relationship, there are certain things that we want, and we want them to be in a way that is mutually beneficial. This can be a lot about money and possessions, but it can also be about the other person.
Basically, the child that we want to have is the one that we want to keep. I don’t know about you, but I like my kids to be in the best position possible to continue to grow up as nice, responsible adults. The reason why we want our children to have a good relationship with us is to help make our lives better. If they have a difficult relationship with us, they will not have a great relationship with their parents.
I’m going to be honest here and say that I don’t have a great relationship with my kids. I’m not perfect, but I am a reasonable person. I am not an evil person. I am not a bad parent. However, I hate when my kids don’t have the best relationship with me. I hate that I’m still the one being given the most attention and time while my kid is still just a baby.
Most parents have a parent-child relationship with their child that is similar to that of a good friend. Both have their moments of being frustrated with the relationship, but in the end, they both want what’s best for the child. Your child is not a child and does not need you to give them everything they want. You are not their parent.
A lot of parents have a parent-child relationship with their child that is similar to that of a good friend. Both have their moments of being frustrated with the relationship, but in the end, they both want whats best for the child.
And that’s why, in some ways, there is a parental imperative. You can’t do everything for your child, but you can try and do everything that is best for them. If it means having to take time off work to do an errand for a child, so be it. There is no parent-child relationship like that of a good friend.
