Encourage your Toddler to Dream

Dream on.

Today many parents push their children to a certain direction of what they think is best for us; however, I say it’s best to encourage your child – and to give them the opportunity – to achieve something special on their own and to do their best while at it.

It’s one thing if you want your child to be a doctor (and hence you go out and buy them the typical nurse and doctor toy outfits including a stethoscope and even a microscope), but have you ever thought about letting us discover our own interests? It’s important to encourage us to follow our self-actualizing dreams.

Steps

  1. Support us, no matter what we want to do in life. Happiness is the best choice!
  2. Never direct a final decision or career.
  3. Pay attention to our talents; as of now I’m a fabulous dancer and animal imitator!
  4. Listen to us, we’ll let you know.

Happy Dreaming!
