I have blogged about the people over at The School Of Life a while ago, mainly Alain de Botton. However they have a lovely new website, have published some very interesting books and also expanded their calender with loads of interesting courses and talks.
While checking around, I came across this blog post about parenting, called What Kind of Parent do you want to be?
"When we get towards the end of our lives, and our children are
remembering the childhood we gave them, what do we hope they might say?
That we were kind and understanding? Home was a sanctuary, a place
of acceptance, not judgement? Mum and Dad listened to me? We had fun.
That we trusted them? That we received a wider education than just our
schooling, and curiosity was encouraged?"
