How to Build A Ship

April 2, 2012

“If you want to build a ship, then don’t drum up men to gather wood, give orders,
and divide the work. Rather, teach them to yearn for the far and endless sea.”
— Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Parents, adapt this wonderful quote for your own children:

“If you want to raise a happy child, do not scold and punish him. Rather, teach him to yearn for praise and respect of his loved ones.”

“If you want your child to get their homework done, don’t watch the clock of the evening. Rather, teach them to enjoy the fruits of productive and efficient work ethics.”

I am just making these up, but I am sure you can add or expand. Please post your versions below!
