How many people think their parents did a good job helping their kids with life and job skills?
career guidance, general advice, college planning and advice, relationship advice, etc.
Personally, my parents did crap and were not much help at all. I was told that what i wanted to do was stupid, and no one would support me. I was a loner growing up and they still want me to be. They tell me that they want me to succeed, but they show no support and refuse to help. If it doesn't benefit them then there's no point in doing it at all.
Once had an offer of a great promotion (more bucks) but was worried that I would miss the job that I had. I was agonizing over it and my dad asked...'couldn't you just go back to this job?" Sounds simple doesn't it. I was up to my bumm in the swamp though.
He was like that, my Dad. Great ideas and ALWAYS on my side. Mom was no slouch either.
I know this makes me a lucky lucky person. I try to pass this on to my step-kid and grandson.
Parents can only do WHAT they do &no more. Parents can only teach &advise children based upon their own knowledge of things. One cannot expect parents to teach what THEY DO NOT KNOW! read more
My parents though me to be responsible and honest. And I think that these are 2 of the most important personal and also professional skills one must have!

Why is it that some people believe that they will remain even whence their physical bodies are gone? Does science back this up? Does scripture?
