Descrizione

A bucket list for parents… just in case. 


 


You look at an innocent young child and visualize their wonderful potential for a happy, successful adulthood. Every parent wants to give their child the best tools for navigating through modern life and, especially, avoiding some of the mistakes of their parents.


 


But, what if you weren’t present to guide them and prepare them for the modern world? What if, instead, you were limited to writing a series of letters for your child to read as they matured? What if you wrote letters to your child about the best ideas, best values, and best practices - and things to best avoid? If these letters were your legacy to your child, what would you say?


 


It’s That Simple: Life Lessons For My Son In 10 Letters is a condensation of the most important lessons one father would want his son to read about and benefit by. But these principles and best practices apply to all parents and their children - and, indeed, to all of us as individuals. Read the 10 letters one father wrote; then think about what letters you would write to your own child… just in case.

PREFACE

Why should I write a book of life lessons in the form of letters to my son? And why should you want to read them? Let me try to answer those highly important questions before you proceed.

After I became a parent, I grew acutely aware of my responsibility to nurture my child and, furthermore, to prepare him for adulthood in the modern world. In addition to providing the basics of food, clothing, and shelter, what did I want him to understand about life in the modern world? What lessons had I learned that I could teach him?

Usually, I had learned my own life lessons while laying dazed and bewildered, with my chin digging a nice, new furrow in the dust - or even worse, following a humiliating public failure. Like any parent, I would like to have my child avoid that type of high-impact learning as much as possible. Those lessons are frequently painful, involve a lot of wasted time, and can even (occasionally) lead to permanent negative changes in a person’s life.

So, I asked myself, From all my experiences, observations, reading, and reflections, what values, relationship rules, and best practices would I want to pass on to my child? Then, a horrible thought intruded on my ruminations about what to impart to my son: What if something happened to me? What if I wasn’t there to teach him in person and by example? What if, as my son grew up, I couldn’t spend time every day in explaining what I wanted him to understand about life? That is when I decided to write a book comprised of a series of short letters that contain the kernels of lessons I have learned. Those letters would summarize what I wanted to tell him. Just in case…

And you, dear reader, what’s in it for you? Well, I hope that, while reviewing the deeply held values and practices that I want my child to understand and incorporate into his life, you may find something of use to you in your own journey through life. I hope this book is worth your time investment as an individual or as a parent.

Please don’t ask if I have done all the things I advocate. (I can already sense the chortles, chuckles, smirks, and outright guffaws from those who know me.) Sadly, I have fallen far short of the ideals I promote in these letters. However, I argue that, as a lifelong victim of poor habits and disastrous impulses, I am thus superbly qualified to write this book. I hope these words might guide my son and help him avoid some of my most appalling errors. Perhaps, knowing that I will be one of his role models, I can be better in the future. Perhaps they will help you
