WHAT IS YOUR PARENTING GOAL?
We often know our career, financial, and life goals, but it is rare to have parents who have clear written goals for their children and work towards fulfilling them.
If you ask most parents what their parenting goal is, they may end up telling you something like this, “I want my children to be good, to travel abroad, to be a Doctor, Engineer or Lawyer. I want them to build their own houses, have big cars, have Doctorate degrees, become Governors of our states, have private jets, have a company of their own that is worth billions of naira or dollars, etc”.
While these aspirations are good for our children, they are inappropriate goals, or better still, they should be secondary goals. If you miss the primary goals, your children may never attain your secondary goals for them.
