“When someone is a perfectionist, they often micro-manage their children which limits their freedom,” my counselor told me, “So, I want you to write about two principles you want your children to learn for governing their lives–to be able to go into life and do well. There are so many we could choose, but I want you to only pick two.”
After much thought (there really are so many!), these are the two principles I finally chose for my children:
- Obedience to God’s will
- Compassion for others
What two principles would you choose for your children?
