Though the title of this article may come off as somewhat arrogant, my goal as a parent is in fact to raise a superior child. For three years, my son has been my sole focus and my task has been to raise a happy and healthy child who will one day follow along the path that was laid out for him during early on. The habits instilled in our children during early adolescence shape who they will become; basically, a fat lazy child will grow to be a fat lazy adult. It is a given that we want the best for our children, both while they are young and years from now during adulthood. That is why now, when we are ultimately responsible for every aspect of their lives, is the time that we must make the right choices on their behalf.
What I would like to do with this feature is share some of my experiences as a parent. This is my first and only child, so naturally the whole thing has been, and continues to be, a learning process. My goal is to share ideas and bring to light some of the things other parents may not have considered yet. There are small changes that can be made that lead to huge benefits, and I want to discuss these without sounding pretentious. But the fact is that I have dedicated three years to making sure that my son is superior, mentally and physically, and it shows. Merely reading this publication says that you yourself are set above the norm, and that you have achieved a higher level of thinking than “regular” people. So there is no shame in wanting our children to rise above as well, and I believe it should be a primary goal of any WN parent.
The next issue will feature the first real topic to be discussed- nutrition. There are two facets I will touch upon- tips to make sure that your child has a wholesome, natural and nutritious diet, and the development of eating habits that will last throughout their lives. Be prepared for plenty of ranting, but helpful information and nutritious yet kid-friendly recipes.
