On Parenting

This post is inspired by this.

I try to see things through his eyes — to put myself into his mind. When he gets upset, I try to remember what it was like to be his age and relate at that level.

Derek Sivers

When I was a young girl crying, one vivid thought I had was, “Have you not been young before? Were you not my age before? Don’t you understand how much this means to me?”

If I ever have children one day, I hope I will be able to remember how that feels and have the patience to relate to him/her at that level.
