Make Sure They are Self-Sufficient

We as parents have the job of making sure our children are self-sufficient, so when they move out, they stay out. Yes, we have to feed them and clothe them, but everything we do in raising them all ends up pointing to helping them become self-sufficient adults. We see their strengths and steer them towards independence. Boy #2, since the days he starting walking and playing, is going to do well in life working with his hands. He shows some interest in plumbing and would like to start his own business eventually. There are a lot of plumbers I told him, get into a sales training course. Then you have an edge over your competition. He’s a competitor and a great conversationalist, he will do well for himself. Now about those other two kids of mine………….
