11 Life Lessons to Remember

When I become a parent, I want to remember:
  • Kids don't want you to dismiss their problems or act like I know the problem. 
  • My life is not theirs.
  • Kids will always be different from how you grew up.
  • My style is not their style.
  • Do not split sides. I will always use their mixed race together positively or not at all.
  • I will not ask the kid to see in black or white or yellow or brown or red.
My parents had good lessons I want to pass on:
  • Question everything.
  • Think for yourself.
  • Read.
  • Value education, athleticism, and music equally.
  • Don't let anyone else define you.
