Well for most parents are very good at creating environments that leads kids to become followers, that conditions kids to mind other people’s life business, and only a few parents create environments that lead kids to become leaders; that conditions kids to mind their own life business, meaning environments that brings out the genius, the potential within a child. The fact is you can become a parent with or without a child, with or without being married and with or without a degree.
One important job of a parent is to create or find the system or an environment that brings out a child’s genius, that inspires kid’s love of learning to develop, that improve and share that genius from within a child to reach as many people as they can reach out here in this world. It can be music, writing, sport, cooking, fashion, painting, computer programming, law, farming etc; it’s your duet as a parent to create and to support your child’s genius to find such an environment.
The problem is that school does not, unless by chance for a kid to realize their own talent through school-system and it’s a pity that school is often a day care institution so that parents may go to work.
This is what defines a parent, someone who inspires and brings out the responsibility, brings out the potential, the genius within a child and supports it to shine out there; not just getting pregnant, impregnating or a giving birth only, No! Today, society lacks and needs more parents, than just fathers and mothers only.
