It’s harder than a day job –
To raise and care for the people of the future.
You work around the clock and can’t call in sick.
Those kids grow so quickly that you’re always on your toes, and who knows what tomorrow will bring? Above all, you never even got any training!
Do you have everything you need?
Crib? Check. Clothing? Check. Love and devotion? Check, Check.
Still, you’re nervous.
What if there are still some boxes you haven’t checked? What if you don’t even know what those boxes are?
Begin at the beginning.
A popular Chinese proverb says, “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second-best time is now.”
As the parent of a young child, you have an unmatched opportunity. You probably already know that the child’s future is firmly in your hands.
By age 20, where will they be?
Will they be ready to grow ever-upward like the regal redwood? Or will they languish, bewildered and fragile, lacking the strong root system of a supportive childhood?
The body is the foundation – the floor is the workshop.
American culture sees a baby’s first steps as a huge milestone – even a “rite of passage.” However, society often takes for granted the many, many milestones that take place during that first year of life.
Work done on the floor, en route to standing and walking.
Is baby doing high-quality work?
If you, the caregiver, don’t provide the right encouragement and environment, they may suffer from stunted growth.
And while, in most cases, your child will somehow be able to get up and walk, this achievement doesn’t necessarily mean they’re walking well.
This problem can put the future at risk.
Strong Body – Strong Brain
Science now helps us understand the connection between early childhood development (particularly birth-three years) and future success.
Research links those strong roots set during development to future educational success, economic production, responsible citizenship, lifelong wellness, and well-built communities.
Those roots can even produce a generational effect, so your investment now will benefit your grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and so on.
Tall order, no?
While it’s true that these stakes are very high, please, don’t be afraid!
You’ve already checked the love and devotion boxes, thus completing the most important steps.
