When we are young , young as in elementary days…we have little to no stress. The only stress we have is ‘How much homework do we have,and if the kid next to you has lice or not.’ During our growing phases we begin to realize who we are, and we act out with our individual personalities. As we all know… not anyone is built the same, and we’re all so unique and different which means there is no one else like each of us! Sometimes as kids we find it hard to fit in… we find it hard to know who’s right to hang out with, and who’s a good influence and who’s not so good. Life becomes harder as the elementary days turn into middle school days. Puberty really kicks in, as hormones are raring to go…as we start to define who we are even more, as we try to become the best us we always hoped to become. Sometimes it’s hard to follow the path we once thought that we would. Struggles become more than just ‘What’s for homework?’… as experimenting becomes more, truths become lies, and lessons become learned. As young adults we start to find ourselves more and more, as we find out more and more about ourselves through experience and living…with right choices being made, and the wrong ones to go with it. As time passes we start to put a name on ourselves…a label, as we wear a mask of our own choice! We become who we decide to become, and as we become it…we hope to be accepted by others. As young adults we realize that we have so much more to learn in life, and there is so much more ahead of us than what meets the eye…we begin to grow even more, while the realization of life kicks in full throttle. Habits become old, as new ones seem to look appealing on the horizon…while we find growth once again in high school. NOW…we as adults no longer in elementary, middle school, nor high school, nor college…but become married with children. We now as parents want to teach our children everything that there is to know. As we now are the adults… with our little ones looking up to us. We have decided to be the best we can be, and we have decided to become the best role models that we know to be. However, as time is time… and time changes, as does the way of life. We as adults have lessons learned, and knowledge still everyday to look upon. As we share the learned knowledge with our little gems… our children, they look to us for the right answers. All we have to do is be there, listen to them, and converse with them. We as parents can not change our past, but we can help teach our children to be the best them for their future.
