As a mom who has worked with my own children and many others in my music studio for more than twenty years now, I have realized that if I could encourage parents along the journey with something in particular it would be in the area of life lessons. I began a blog and outlined a book about life lessons with this sole purpose, and still believe it to be one of the biggest things that I would love for parents to hear and understand.
Learning life lessons that enable children to become better, more responsible adults truly begins in our homes. Reading this week here, I was surprised to find that many millennials when asked what age adulthood begins respond with the age of 30 or even 40! What?! How did this happen? Why did we allow them to believe that their adolescence should and could stretch this far?
While I cannot and will not say that I have all the answers because I truly don’t, I think that we can as parents take an active role in helping our children in their maturity. We can then encourage those young families with young children to begin the same process in their homes. While we can’t reap mature adults right away, we can begin to make progress and turn this ship around!
