Haim Ginott said, “Parents often talk about the younger generation as if they didn’t have anything to do with it.”
How quickly we forget what we were like when we were younger. I don’t wish my kids (haven’t got any yet) to do everything I did but I will have to remember I was a little so and so to.
We all want better for the next generation but does if have to be at the expense of them having the fun we had and being reckless like we were?
Recklessness builds things and builds up a risk factor that creates change. Maybe try being reckless every so often. The smile you will have, and the exhilaration you will feel, will help you to remember what it was like to be young.
