Raising a Diego Maradona

As the chief architect of my students’ academic and general educational progress, it is essential that I listen to my husband’s and my kids’ voiced and muted opinion. We often talk about how we parents would do just about anything for our children’s sake. It is not often discussed how kids, on the other hand, would follow their parents’ lead in the name of love. Believe me when I say that most often, the things that were not said reveal more than those that were loudly spoken. I try to check every now and then if my children would only agree to do what I tell them to do, because of fear that if they do not they would disappoint me.
