Parenting Matters 1.0 eBook

The title of this book is Parenting Matters 1 .0. And parenting matters – a lot!

We owe it to ourselves, we owe it to our children and we owe it to each other, to do the best job we can with our children. After all, they are:

  • the ones who will care for us in our old age
  • the ones who will operate on us or grow us brand new organs to replace our failing ones
  • the inventors and problem solvers of the future who will fix the mess we have made of our planet
  • the next generation of talent we will employ in our businesses
  • the next generation of civic, political and economic leaders who will make big decisions affecting our future, and so much more.

How we parent our children today will determine how they will respond in the situations and positions mentioned above.

If you are reading this, then your children are lucky enough to actually have parents or caregivers who care! How we influence and shape our children should never be underestimated, as illustrated by three and a half year old Jana who was walking along the beach with her dad, Gustav, hand-in-hand.

He noticed that she kept looking over her shoulder as they were walking along. Then she tugged on his hand, stopped and said, “Daddy, you cannot pick up your footprints!” What words of wisdom from someone so small. Our footprints really are indelible. Nothing is too big or too small that it doesn’t make a mark on, or shape our children in some way – thank goodness children are far more resilient than we actually think, and adversity can be an incredible teacher!

From the time our children are conceived, they make footprints on our hearts too, and we are never the same. No matter how long they are on loan to us, each and every day they make their mark and we are changed.

Whether you are a mum or dad, your children shape your heart and they challenge your mind. They are a reason to get up in the morning, to go out and earn a living, to grow, to love and to lead the best life you can.
