Raising Children Backwards

I came across this post when I was blog-surfing and I thought it was pure gold. The writer was talking about raising boys... backwards. She wrote that we need to love our boy/s "enough to raise him into the man (we) want him to be. Backwards." Intriguing, eh? I thought so, too. Read the complete post here.

She was writing specifically about boys, but I believe that her advice could just as equally apply to girls as well.

It's so true. We need to be able to envision how we want our children to be when they're grown-ups and work toward molding them to be the kind of person who would embody the qualities and principles that would serve them well in life.
