Parents have numerous responsibilities, but there is one responsibility we have that is far more important than all the others.
I know you are trying to figure it out. Your mind is moving…do you know yet?
Maybe you think it is protecting our children. Maybe you think it is taking care of their basic needs (both are very important and vital). Or maybe you are that cool hipster parent and think it is to make sure your kids throw the best parties!
Those are all wrong.
The number one responsibility we have as parents is to ensure we are raising responsible and great adults.
Most of us are obsessed with the success of our children. We want them to have straight A’s, excel at sports, and be popular. If you don’t believe me, scroll down your Facebook feed for two minutes – you’ll see what I mean.
All of that doesn’t matter if our children grow up to be horrible adults.
The most important thing we can do is to raise great adults. Future generations depend depend on it!
