How to Grow Humans Correctly

Respect for your mother's wishes.

Start off small while you're small, wash the dishes.

A father would also be demanding of some respect.

Simply do as he would expect.

Though when does it ever occur that we have things that we,

their children, have our own expectations?

This is an important, yet lost, piece of communication.

Sometimes I sit and wonder if parents just get a kick out of 

demanding their offspring relations.

This encourages the youth to concoct formulas for retaliation.

Some children grow up to be less than they had imagined because

of their parent's strict rules and expectations.

Freedom at a young age is a bare necessity

when it comes to raising children to full prosperity.

With that being said, there is a time and place to show authority.

I am not a parent yet but maybe someday in the distance,

but I know that I will raise my children to have plenty of freedom

and positivity to the fullest amount of persistence.
