About this Quote

This quote by Denis Waitley highlights the importance of mentor children duty and independence. By giving them the roots of obligation, we are teaching them to be liable for their actions and to take ownership of their decisions. This will help them to end up being more self-reliant and confident in their abilities. By providing the wings of independence, we are teaching them to be independent thinkers and to make their own choices. This will help them to end up being more self-sufficient and to be able to make decisions without counting on others. By teaching our children these two important worths, we are providing the tools they require to end up being effective and independent adults.
