This op-ed piece, “Notes From a Dragon Mom”, was in todays’ NY Times. It is a profound lesson for everyone but especially those of us, perhaps, whose children are not fatally ill. It reminds us that all any of us really have is today. Treating our children harshly now to prepare them for the future is something I’ve always thought misguided; after reading this article it is nothing less than tragic.
Love your kids. All the time in the world doesn’t exist. There is only now.
