0:27 – WELCOME
Young children, middle school kids, teens and even adults dream about who they will become, what they can achieve or what difference they can make in the world. Good parents want to know their children well enough to hear about those dreams and help children either follow them or shift their passions toward more realistic goals. In many ways, helping our children pursue their dreams, helps parents who never reached their own. It is important to be able to handle our child’s intentions in an instructive, supportive and realistic way. But doing this isn’t easy. We live with healthy skepticism and sometimes feel threatened by the nature of our children’s dreams. We will hear a story about one man’s dreams and how pursuing them challenged everything his parent’s taught him. That man is the featured guest in this episode, filmmaker and author David A.R. White. His story illuminates how a child’s dreams can seemingly oppose the core values that parents teach their children. Most importantly, it shows how parents can respond in ways that keep their kids on track in the most important areas of life.
