Accept the children the way we accept trees with gratitude because they are a blessing- but do not have expectations or desires. You don’t expect trees to change; you love them as they are.” Isabel Allende.
To me, this quote means we need to love our children the way they are, with unconditional love. Unconditional love is the cornerstone of nurturing children without pressure or manipulation. Embrace them for who they are without imposing your expectations or desires allows them the freedom to explore, learn and grow in their unique ways. All of us dream that our children will be happy and safe and have a good life. Still, the way that we as parents do that is by loving them, supporting them, guiding them, and being positive role models, These are crucial for their development. Let them figure out for themselves what path they can choose and be there, always be there for them.
Pressuring children to fit into predetermined figures or diminishing their worth based on not meeting specific expectations can stifle their individuality and self-confidence. On the other hand, allowing them space to discover their interests, strengths, and passions while offering a safety net of love and support enables them to flourish on their terms.
