“Children are not a distraction from more important work. They are the most important work.” – Dr. John Trainer
This morning as I listened to one of my favorite podcasters talk about really listening to our children, about not making them into a product but treating them as a person, I was filled with immense hope for the future.
Because my favorite podcaster isn’t a homeschool mum or child development specialist or in any way related to podcasts about parenting and relationships. He is a crass entrepreneur speaking to millennials. .
And if he is saying it then I know others are saying it and I know a shift is taking place. A shift away from a century of conveyor belt education, away from expectations of excellence in sports and academics, toward living fully, wholly, passionately, purposefully.
On Sunday my son and I did a short video over on my fb page about why he is building a doTERRA business with someone else. It’s so deeply important to me that he is in a place where he will flourish that I didn’t care for one second that it wouldn’t be growing my own business. We have a unique and powerful opportunity through doTERRA to connect our children with incredible mentors and it is an aspect of this business that I am only just recently feeling the magnitude of. Whether it’s for a month or a year or a lifetime, doTERRA or dance class or downhill skiing or whatever, consider carefully the space that it will create for input and choose a mentor wisely.
