Our intentions are often good, but horribly misaligned. We set out thinking we are doing the right thing, only to realize we had been aiming at the wrong target the entire time. Sadly, this is what many of us bring to the table as parents.
As parents, our kids are our disciples. Each day they are learning from us, whether we are consciously teaching them or not. Too often my parenting is puny in its vision. Its goal is way too easy. Its outcome is way off target.
