The Child

Real Estate Agent with Exit IH 10 Realty

A man son comes to him with a problem. The man tells his son that if he faces the problem he can do anything this lifetime. The son's concern to a small smile, he is scared but excited and leaves full.

The man turns to his own work and does not finish. He is not 100% as a father of husband. How soon before his son figures out that he really does not have to face his struggle.

Hi Rick,

I don't understand what this means.  I have read it a number of times and I am just feeling silly.  Are you saying that the father procrastinates and that the son will figure out that he can as well? 

Please help me :o), because this looks like it can bring some thought provoking discussion.  Thanss for the post.

Thanks for your comments.

What I am saying is that the son will go only as far as the man. As a leader of children, whether it be a man or a woman, it is not just our words but our actions that raise the child.

Thank you for the explanation.  That does make sense that actions generally speak louder than words.  Children tend to follow that initially.  When they grow up however, some like to try their own way.  We can only hope that our actions, (if they are in alignment), provide a guide for our children when they falter.

Thank you for the post.
