compromise is good in relationships, except when its something you cant compromise on. Never forget your own life plans. Never change your goals and plans for someone else. Never give up on the things you want. That is how people grow to resent each other later in life. And that is not what i want.--Words of advice from Ananda to Ananda
Listen earnestly to anything your children want to tell you, no matter what. If you don't listen eagerly to the little stuff when they are little, they won't tell you the big stuff when they are big, because to them all if it has always been big stuff.
