As a parent, I read every new book or article about parenting and education. That was before blogs, thank goodness, so it narrowed the field some what! I did it because I wanted the very best for my children. I suppose I thought by being informed of the best way to parent, I would provide my children with all they needed to be successful in life without the struggles many families face. I soon found out life doesn’t work that way. “We make plans, and God laughs!” has become a favorite quote. Don’t get me wrong, I have great kids ( mostly grown now) but I didn’t foresee them dealing with dyslexia , anxiety, depression, or the demands of life as I planned the perfect path for my children.
What are your thoughts? As a parent, have you been torn to be the Tiger Mom or to choose a different path? What support do parents have to make decisions on their child’s education? Is there only one way to parent? Let me hear from you.
