Childhood

Have we ever stopped to think about our parent’s childhoods? Most of us don’t really see our parents as people who were once children. They are just our parents (or step-parents or whomever step into a parent role and shape our lives).

But they also had a childhood, and that childhood directly affected how they raised us. And in turn how we were raised will impact the way that we raise any children we may have.

Perhaps it is worth asking our parents what their childhoods were like and what events happened to them, it might help us to better understand ourselves and our own childhoods.
