Your child’s happiness

Put in my opinion, which I respect.

Text Size:

I was in a group the other day and a high school guidance counselor mentioned that this year she had a rash of parents tell her that they (the parents) felt that it was “their job” to see to it that their children “are happy.”

Since that time I asked several others (teachers and counselors) and they also said that this year that seems to be “the parent mantra.” Time for my opinion, which I respect. This goes out to all of you helicopter, diaper sniffing parents that feel this way. YOUR JOB IS NOT TO ENSURE YOUR CHILD’S HAPPINESS. Not even the Constitution of this great country does any more than to proclaim that we all have the right to “pursue” happiness.
