The Upbringing of our Children 

As parents we want our children to succeed in life. Not for us , but for themselves, for the future.

The base of every child starts with the parent.

We raise them up and attempt to mold them how we want them to be. But every child will take their own form only displaying traits of what the parents have taught them along the way. 

We have to instill confidence in our children. By reflecting confidence  we are giving our children the potential to succeed. 

Parents, if your child has doubts, it is your job to reassure them of their possibilities and bring them up. Kids beat themselves up enough as it is, only to have their parent tell them, they can’t do this or they shouldn’t do that or your not that good at this or that. 

Children face many moments in their life where they get confused, and they doubt themselves. Our words and actions have power over our children and for them to gain confidence, it is they key to their success.

As a parent you have the power to make or break your child. 

Of course we are not perfect and neither are our children. We can not get it right all the time. But in the end as long as we make sure we build our kids up and never tear them down then we have done our part in planting the seed of hope and opportunity.

Understanding Parents


We have all been to the point where we just don’t understand our parents; let alone them trying to understand us, but now that I am older with kids of my own, I understand.

I am the oldest of 2 brothers. I have been listening to them complain constantly……

One of them expects everything to be handed to him, and gets mad when it’s not.                                                                         The other Thinks his father is too hard on him and always Nags at him.

Well Guess what? There is a reason for His Madness!

The way I see it is He just wants you both to Grow into Mature hard working men that depend on yourselves rather than others.

He wants you be independent rather than dependent on others.

He wants you to Be more than just a statistic, and actually make a difference.

He doesn’t just hand you everything because he want you to know what it feels like to work for what you want and need.

He wants you to be better than he was.

He wants you to Know the struggle before you ACTUALLY struggle.

Just look at the bigger picture and realize that there is more to it than what meets the eye. Our parent or parents Push us so we can strive in this Screwed Up society. 

They just want us to be prepared and able to take on anything that may come our way.

You don’t see it now but trust me, eventually you will and when you do, I’m going to be right there to tell you I told you so and there is always a reason for the Madness!
