We’re here in Kenya eating breakfast and there is a giraffe sticking its head in through the window.
This giraffe made me think that a lot of people get enabled. Parents think it’s the loving thing to do to pay their kid’s electric bill because if they don’t, that mean electric company is going to turn off their electricity. When in reality, their kid wasn’t responsible, spent all their money on partying or whatever and then didn’t have enough money to pay their bill.
When the food goes bad in the fridge, they learn money management, time management and other lessons so they become more responsible. But when parents absorb life lessons for them it screws the child over.
These giraffes have a good balance.
