Remember all the dumb things you did as a kid? You survived! Above is an image of me when I was 5 years old, trying to be Bugs Bunny. I can remember the dumb things I did and I am still here to tell you about it. As we become mature adults and have children of our own, we remind them not to do the dumb things we did. However, in the end, they find their own dumb things to do in spite of our experienced counsel. Life shows us just how tough we are as we grow into adults. We learn from our mistakes and it is only when we learn those lessons from our own experience, do we learn the lesson. It should be a comfort that we and ultimately our children can say: "I SURVIVED MY CHILDHOOD!"
