Your Answers: The Results Parents Are Hoping For

“In order for all of us to agree upon a consistent way of parenting—a standard—we must first identify and then agree upon the ultimate results we wish to see in our children when they become adults.” – Jones, The Noticer Returns by Andy Andrews

I asked for your help in coming up with some results that we would like to see in our kids as they grow into adults. Here is what you said…
(Not listed in any particular order)

To have compassion
To be kind
To be loving
To be a christian
To be independant
To be aware
To believe in God
To be honest with themselves
To be Non-addicted
To be responsible
To seek God in everything they do
To be patient
To be the best you can be
To make wise choices
To have a good work ethic
To love their spouse
To be thankful
To be positive
To be healthy
To treat others at you want to be treated

Thank you to everyone that took a moment to respond.
It would be hard to believe that any parent would disagree with anything on this list. Thus, it would seem fair to assume that we can agree on the results that we want to see in our kids. The real challenge is to see if it is possible for parents to agree on a standard or best method for achieving those results.

In my next post I’ll lay out a standard which I believe, if followed, will have a great chance of leading to the results that every parent hopes to see.

What do you think?
