If there’s a more important way of approaching life for the twenty years required to (hopefully) raise a successful next generation, I don’t know what that is. Along the way here we have found ourselves adrift on a sea of self-actualization, with commensurate values.
It’s easy to forget how small is our window for molding our offspring’s ways of thinking, their responses and their values. What they see they will do. DNA is fixed at the moment of conception; we have more breathing room to develop attitudes, but not much.
Finding someone who shares this idea might be the most difficult treasure hunt most people undertake. Good luck, Brad.
