You have to raise them.

You have to nurture them.

You love them.

You listen to them.

You guide them.

You role model to them.

You help them.

You teach them.

Then you sit back and let them figure it out.

But if you want to be a happy human, your personal satisfaction cannot be dependent on the quality of their choices.

Your personal satisfaction can only be dependent on the quality of YOUR choices.
