– Socrates –
Quoting Robert Frost, “I am not a teacher, but an awakener.” I believe that as much as we may want to teach someone something or to simply impart knowledge, there is no way we can force it onto the person if he or she is unwilling to learn. What we can only hope to achieve is to kindle a flame from within the person for learning. The video beautiful illustrated the best gift we can give to children as a parent. What touched me deeply were the lines from the video,
“I’m happy to see her learn from experience and solve problems on her own. Someday when I’m not around, I know that she will be just fine.“
What do you hope to leave for your children when you are not around?
