“We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that they are someone today.” -Stacia Tauscher
This quote makes me realize that sometimes we focus more on what we want for our kids in the future. Instead of focusing on what kids need now. I know that it is nice to dress your kid up and have everyone gawk and compliment how cute they look. Is that really what they need though? I don’t think their first thought is getting the latest clothes or any other materialistic item. I hope that this quote opens our eyes to realize that kids need love, attention, and good values to live by. The last thing we would want is for the kids to look back and realize they were hurried through their childhood and have nothing to reminisce on. The usual life expectancy today is 78 years, which childhood is only a small fraction of that. So, let’s not forget that we should focus on them now and try not to get to caught up with what’s going to happen in 10 or 20 years.
