Diversification Training

Posted by Dutchman Monday, September 28, 2009

I have two sons. They couldn't be any more different from each other. One likes sports, the other does not. One likes to eat Mexican, Burger King, and pasta. The other hates those, but likes Subway, Chinese, and fish. One likes to go to bed and get up early, the other stays up all night whenever he gets a chance. One saves every dollar while a dollar will burn a hole in the pocket of the other. One likes sci-fi and horror movies and the other likes sports and historical flicks. One tackles school work with ease, the other has to put forth major effort.
While this makes things difficult for a parent, perhaps in some ways it is a good thing. As a parent, you have to learn to deal with each child's diversity. If you didn't have this sort of challenge, being a parent might be pretty boring. In trying to see life through each child's eyes, you might just open up new horizons for yourself.

I'm a middle aged divorced father living with my two sons. We like to canoe, bicycle, fish, camp, play baseball, and spend money when we want and where we want, without permission from anybody. HA!
