What do I as a parent or teacher have to pass on to my children before I die/before they take off and are on their own? Is there some sort of manual on how to make the most of our being human?
It can be quite challenging and are not so easy to answer. The answer can be varied as well, which makes it even harder to find out. Yet, as soon as we have figured out this one, we have a great compass for making decisions regarding our children. Be it at home, be it at school.
When thinking about what we want to pass on to the next generation, we can start by looking at what it is that we wish for them. And these wishes are quite similar all over the world. It actually already begins when you are pregnant and you feel that life growing inside you. Can you remember? And you know what parents-to-be tell you all over the world when they are being asked what they are wishing for their children? It is good health and the rest will be fine.
