Wednesday Words of Wisdom – Kid President

words of wisdom for kids

It’s been said that when you have kids, everything changes. Before I had kids, this statement didn’t fully register with me. I mean, of course, things will change, they always do. What I didn’t realize was that having kids wouldn’t just change my circumstances and environment, it would change my entire being, forever. The person I thought I was, was about to completely transform. This may sound dramatic, but let me explain. Looking back, these are the words of wisdom I’d give myself before I had kids.

You Will Find Your Own Normal

It’s easy to look at the glossy images of happy families with children and assume there is a norm when it comes to raising a family. The truth is: There is no normal. There are so many variations of what normal looks like family to family. I got a first-hand introduction to this when we found out our first daughter would be born with a life-threatening birth defect. We knew early on in our pregnancy, and our idea of a normal was immediately flipped in an instant. Every experience I expected to have during birth went very different in reality. The truth is that you can prepare for what you think is the norm, but it’s not really normal. It’s just the ideal. The good news is that you will find your own normal in your own time, and you don’t have to feel guilty or ashamed if it doesn’t look anything like what you thought it would. There is beauty in every experience, and each child will come with their own unique experience, believe me. 

You Will Find Friends in Unexpected Places

I have come to acknowledge the truth that parenting is the great equalizer. Think you are a real winner at life? Have kids. There is nothing like a child to show you your weaknesses. I have consistently been in awe of how kids can take an overachiever and conquer them, and an unmotivated person and motivate them. They level the playing field, unlike anything I’ve ever witnessed. When you finally discover that, you look around and see that we are more alike than we are different. It’s here you will begin to make friends in the most unexpected places. Parenting is no place for isolation. You are going to need your friends more than you know. Parenting also has a way of inviting you to reach out. For me, I’ve done things I’ve never been brave enough to do before because I did them for my kids. In this way, friendships are built because we need other parents to show us the way and lift us up when we are spent. It sounds cliché, but it really does take a village. Maybe you’ll meet them at the grocery store like I did, or at orientation for preschool. Keep your eyes open though, you might just meet your next best mom-friend, the person that will help you get through some of the largest challenges of your life. 

Parenting Will Remake You 

Just when I thought I knew myself, I become a parent. All of a sudden I thought, “I need to be a mom now and do mom things.” I even thought I had to dress like a mom. For some reason I had it in my head I’d be judged as a poor mother if I was just myself. As if wearing cardigans and aprons would somehow make me a better mom. It didn’t take long for me to cast off the box I’d put myself in and return to who I felt I really was. The makeover I ultimately underwent had a lot less to do with my attire, and a whole lot more to do with my mind. It didn’t happen all at once, no the transition was subtle. At first, it’s the sobering knowledge that you suddenly have a human life to care for. Then it’s the toughening of your resolve as you learn to navigate your toddler’s tantrums. Slowly but surely though, you make the transition into this new person that looks at life entirely different. Sometimes this comes with soaring highs when you conquer a personal challenge, sometimes it comes with depths of despair when you realize you are going to fail and fail drastically. Find encouragement in knowing that all these new layers are exactly what you need to be the best parent you can possibly be. Is it easy or natural? No, it’s extraordinarily challenging, but it also has its moments of extraordinary fulfillment. 

It’s a Humbling Experience

They say that the best parents are folks without kids. Meaning, that it’s always easier to judge what good parenting looks like when you don’t actually have to do it yourself. I confess, before kids, I was a total pro at how people should parent. I couldn’t understand why some parents just couldn’t keep control of their ill-behaved kids. I mean, why would you even bring them out in public if they were so wild? Some places just aren’t suitable for small children right? Or so I thought back then. Having your own children will serve you a large slice of humble pie, and boy have I been noshing on mine for a while. We all have our own path to parenthood, and it looks uniquely different for everyone. It’s full of extreme highs and lows, much laughter and plenty of tears. It is truly the greatest adventure. One I wouldn’t trade for the world.

64 Inspirational Quotes for Kids

words of wisdom for kids

I wanted to give my eldest a different birthday present this year and seeing that 'words' are what I do best, I chose to pass on some wisdom that I've learned over the years. Who knows whether they'll be listened to! Would I have listened to my parents at 24?

Perhaps these are words of wisdom for us all, whatever our age. Perhaps if our children are younger, we can set the intention to parent in such a way that we teach them this wisdom by example.

  1. You are not your job. You are not the amount of cash you have in the bank. You are not your possessions.
  2. Find your passion. Look for what inspires you. Find what you love to do and pursue it with all your heart. You may well find a way how to make money from doing it.
  3. Love hurts. But it is so much better than closing yourself off for fear of being hurt and not experiencing love.
  4. Communication and respect are the foundations for a lasting relationship.
  5. Three things are needed in a relationship -- lust, love, and shared values.
  6. Never compare yourself to others. It's a waste of energy. You are unique and have your own gifts to offer the world.
  7. Look after your health -- physical, mental, and spiritual.
  8. Don't complain. Decide what you will tolerate and get on with life.
  9. Set boundaries -- work, family, and friendships.
  10. Little stuff matters -- manners get you a long way.
  11. Be grateful. List the things you are grateful for everyday.
  12. Expect to fail. Failure is not fatal. Learn the lessons, then get back up and try again.
  13. Have outrageous dreams. You'll be amazed at what comes true.
  14. Act with integrity at all times.
  15. Call your parents. They may well have screwed up but they raised you to the best of their abilities.
  16. Know your values. Let no one violate what you hold as important be that a boss or your partner.
  17. You don't need to have it all worked out. Tomorrow is another day.
  18. Lighten up on yourself. Breathe deeply and slowly.
  19. Listen to your inner dialogue. Would you speak to someone you love in the same way?
  20. Take risks, take leaps of faith. You'll grow wings.
  21. Be of service to others. Be interested in others. People will always remember what you did for them.
  22. "No" is a complete sentence.
  23. Don't stress so much over decisions. Decisions needn't be forever.
  24. Cultivate and nurture friendships. With love and care they can last a lifetime. At the same time don't be afraid to edit friendships.
  25. You are enough just as you are. Perfect in your imperfection.
  26. Learn to accept compliments. Simply say 'thank you'.
  27. Be willing to show that you are vulnerable. It is in fact the greatest act of courage.
  28. You are never alone.
  29. Forgive. Yourself first and then others. We are all in this together.
  30. Your attitude is always a choice.
  31. Laugh a lot. Have fun.
  32. Magic happens outside your comfort zone.
  33. Learn to love yourself now. It gets harder if you leave it until you're older.
  34. Don't worry about what other people think. They think about you a lot less than you imagine.
  35. Follow your intuition. Your guts have the answer. Every time.
  36. Happiness starts within. Do not expect anyone else to make you happy.
  37. Be financially savvy right from the off. Save 10%. Debt is not pretty. Make your own lunch for work. A cappuccino and a sandwich a day soon add up.
  38. Life isn't a race. Stop and smell the roses. Really.
  39. When overwhelmed ask yourself, "Will this even be an issue in 5 years time?"
  40. Change happens. It's one of the great certainties in life. Learn to roll with it.
