Don`t Be Impatient - Don`t Insult By Comparison! The biggest favour my father did for me was when I failed in 9th class and my younger brother passed (we were in same class!). He did not insult me or compared me with anyone else, including my younger brother. An example, of excellent parenting. And, I think, I flowered at 40! Think it over. Be patient with your children. Keep on doing your best for your children. Be as much creative as well as innovative in managing your children as you are in your profession, if not more! If you do that, you will be solving your problems of tomorrow, today! I did.
