One incredible quote from Dr. Meg Meeker’s book The 10 Habits of Happy Mothers applies to both parents:
“The legacy you pass on to your children is your character, not your stocks or bonds. So dig for the best parts of your character and make them surface again and again. When you do this, you will begin to feel your worth and your children will have the added benefit of learning from you.”(Meeker, 107)
There is no better advice for raising kids. So grab a shovel. And dig!
