Lead by the blind reins of who we should be
Children, all bridled and constantly driven,
Unlikely to develop the gifts they’ve been given.

Your desire to control is my life sentence.

parents often have limiting views.

We can’t physically be with our children 24 hrs a day,
But with lessons we instill they’ll always carry us along their way.
Free your kid from the reins that once bound you.
With your guidance and protection,
allow him to roam free and become better than you.
A parents guidance requires
a fundamental tug
to steer them
in the right direction
Carrying the burden of bag and parents expectations
Give your child a direction but don’t show him where to look.

There is no ‘manual’ for correct parenting
so be mindful of the direction you give
Let them carry their own “baggage”;
free them from your “harness”.

Young minds shouldn’t be restrained
in pursuing their dream,
for they will curse you in silent scream.
your dreams and shortcomings
onto your kids.
They have their own life to live
Your parents will be your guide even long after they’re gone.
We program our children. Do it wisely
