What Do You Want to Be?

Written by Mark Merrill

April 21, 2022

That’s a question children hear all the time. And we enjoy hearing their answers… a doctor, a teacher, a fireman, a ballerina. But what if the question was not about what they wanted to do for a living, but who they wanted to be as a person? Less about career, and more about character. Imagine your child answering, “I want to be a person of integrity… of wisdom… of courage and conviction. I want to be patient… compassionate… generous… honest.” Talk to your child about the kind of person they can become. It’s okay to want your kids to have a good career, but it’s more important that they have good character.
