The One Where I Advice My Grandson
Being a parent is often rife with fear and self-doubt.
Growing up you always thought your parents had all the answers. Like they were given a book of life that told them what was the best course of action for any situation.
As you grow and become a parent yourself you realize that you are often winging it.
Situations that didn’t exist when you were a kid. Online bullying, and having your reputation ruined on social media was something that you didn’t have to deal with as a teenager in the seventies.
As a grandparent, I rue the day that I have to advise my grandson Parker with the slings and arrows that will come to bear ten to fifteen years from now.
All I know is that I will tell him to be true to himself, be fair and be proud to shun peer pressure no matter the cost. As Shakespeare said, “To thine own self be true.”
