What is the #1 thing parents can do today, so their kids grow up to be happy, well-adjusted adults? ... This is a great question yet at the same time IMG_04231it is one that requires a very different answer. The answer to what is the #1 thing parents can do today, so their kids grow up to be happy, well-adjusted adults, is to stop trying to “do anything” so your child will be a happy, well-adjusted adult! The renowned philosopher and physician, Deepak Chopra informs us that, “We cannot prevent the future from happening, but we can influence the future from the present.”

In other words, stop trying to do anything so your child will be a certain way in the future but rather focusing on being patient, understanding, love-full, relationship focused, attuned, and nurturing in the present because those are the seeds that are sewn for tomorrow’s harvest. See your child today, in this moment only. Love in this moment only and do not let fears of the future dictate how you should interact with your child today.
