We’re kids, sometimes we forget. We wander off of our routine to learn something new. Sometimes that new thing could be something our adult self would never ever learn to do. Sometimes it is something we thought we knew but never really understood the depths of or simply just needed a refresher. One of those is when parents “figure out” how to teach their kids how to be successful in life.
I’m not saying I totally understand the value of knowing how to keep it cold, no. I’m not saying I understand how to work, no. I’m not saying I understand how to work off the clock and on (unless I’ve taught my kids there are no clocks), no. It’s just that when I go back to the place where I feel like I know how to teach my kids, I do just that. And I sit back and wait for them to come back around with their story and I’m like, “Why didn’t you tell me about this?”
It may not always make sense, but then it makes perfect sense. We sit there and try to teach them the level of education that they need to be successful, we’re constantly looking for the optimum timing when it comes to homework, and then when they come back to explain to us how to teach them when they’re blindfolded they’re surprised! It is a soap opera with a family of humans or a story I can only witness first hand. Sometimes it doesn’t make sense in front of a parent because of the dynamics. We don’t always speak the same language, we don’t know how to communicate those very same words that we know they will always believe me about. We hear ourselves speaking too far from the table, causing our kids to “try a new conversation. And trying a new conversation leads to a new level.”
And then we sit there and wait for them to come back with their story and I’m like, “Why didn’t you tell me about this?”
Parents and the knowledge that they either “owe” their kids or that we simply “pay” ourselves just to provide them a continual education goes way beyond just sounding simplistic. That surface level knowledge is just too tenuous. As parents, we should cherish our yearly Christmas all day, no matter what. There are so many levels that our kids need to learn, but as a parent if it’s not two days of forgetting how to do something you are paying them to do just for that one weekend, or two weekends. Period.
The Grinch talked of it as a blank check with the most vulnerable entity in the world and as hard as I tried to keep the misconception from sinking in I could not. This year my responsibility was no different than the amount of time I’ve spent teaching my own children how to become successful in life. I would like to never pay that price again, but you don’t have to. Spend what you think is the right amount of time with your kids. Don’t overdo it, don’t push it, you don’t need to “learn your way.” Instead learn your way with your children. You owe it to them, you owe it to you, you owe it to your sanity.
