I recently read an article about the importance of being current. When I first read the article’s title, I wasn’t completely sure what it meant. The main idea dawned pretty quickly on me though and I found it to be a valuable bit of advice. The author talks about remaining current in the sense that between parents and children, there shouldn’t be things that go unsaid. This means forgiveness, sharing your beliefs, telling them your dreams, and listening when they do the same. These factors are all a part of “being current” as the post calls it.
As a parent, it is really important to work hard to keep a strong relationship with your kids. When they are younger it is typically easier, but as they grow older that could change. Just keep communicating with them and try to remain as involved as possible with their day to day life.
