Kids enter this world not knowing authority, laws, taxes, or regulations. Their true nature abhors such spiritual restrictions. They are endowed with abundant curiosity for the unknown and a profound fascination for the simple. Their mind knows no bounds. All is possible.
It is our job, as parents, to encourage this delightful wonder into as many aspects of life as possible. The extent to which we impose what we believe is necessary for them to learn is the extent to which we destroy this fragile beauty. The gorgeous flower can only be appreciated by leaving it be. Once it is picked, the deathly wilt has already begun. Enjoy the magnificent by leaving it be. Kids will thrive when left uninterrupted. Success and mastery are natural consequences of an unimpeded curiosity.
It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.
