It is not what you do for your children, but what you have taught them to do for themselves. I teach my kids to be very independent, some people think im too hard (sometimes I think Im too hard), but I know they will be so much better off in the long run!
...no matter whether you are right or wrong, I'll be there for you. I am often asked why I am so fearless; it's because these words were told to me by my dad at the airport when I was 17 and going away from home first time ever. This is my source of strength till date. Love you, dad!
