Parenting, Partnering, or Investing – Times have changed and not necessarily for the better. Parents have far more information at their fingertips but far less knowledge of how to parent. Not only do the children suffer from ill-equipped parents, but the parents suffer as well as shame and regret slowly poison the heart and mind of well-intentioned adults. Perhaps it is not about the desire to be better parents. Maybe it is more about the lack of understanding of the role. Our job, and often our joy, is in raising adults, not raising children. We need to focus our attention on the end result rather than staying in the moment. Without a clear blueprint, a building would fall apart no matter how much the builders poured their hearts and souls into the project. Think of parenting in three steps. The first step is parenting. We know how to do this. It is more about what we command, demand, and communicate at this stage. From birth to about 5th grade, parents are telling their little ones what to do. Unfortunately, many parents stay at this stage. This is why the national average of children leaving home and living independently of their parents is now over the age of 30. Blame Covid or the economy all you want, but that number is just plain wrong. The second stage, which is quite simple to fulfill, is partnering. It is giving the youngster the room to try and fail. It is about the child making choices and learning the consequences that come from good and bad decisions. This level lasts from about 6th grade to 12th grade. The closer to 18, the more responsibility the child is given, which, in turn, comes with far more freedom. The last stage is about investing in your child’s future. The young adult is now facing a cold and hard world. They have learned the joys of victory and the pains of defeat. This is when parents simply invest time, talents, and treasures into their prodigy as a means of being wind beneath their wings. Having difficulty in your parenting skills?
