On raising children -- what economists have to say
I was listening to http://freakonomics.com/2011/08/17/new-freakonomics-radio-podcast-the-economists-guide-to-parenting/ and paid attention to the take-aways.
Children remember kindness. Being kind to them is one of the few things you can do that lasts.
Children learn a few things from you.
Whether or not to smoke.
Whether or not to drink.
Whether or not to be kind to others.
-- your example matters.
Parents who do not obsess are happier and their children are happier and just as successful or more successful than obsessive parents children.
