But what breaks parents more than anything is the lack of patience with themselves.
Many people are placing a title for themselves as parents, but they feel not being worthy for the title, and this is because of many reasons, and that they feel the need to learn more about managing a family, and their capacity to manage is inadequate.
The result will always be the same, no matter how they do it, parents with a so much lack of patience will normally abandon their families.

They think it’s about imposing upon their family their own single-minded vision of what should and should not be.
Those who are open-minded will accept that their family members are a diverse bunch, and admire the differences between them.
They are all teachable and rather than rejecting the difference in their family, and they learn it happily from them.
If their children will choose for example the course which they like to take, even though it is not on their preference, they are still able to show their full support and to encourage them to follow their dreams
