my kids will remember:
that i gave them a voice and never dismissed their opinion (just because i'm the adult and they are 'merely a child')
my non-conformity and that just because everyone else does things that way doesn't mean i have to
that i explain everything rather than saying 'because i said so'
that i am only their guide..it is their life and as long as they are respectful members of their community, i don't mind what it is that they do
what will your kids remember?
