What Is Your Son’s Dream?


“If you’re going to have childhood dreams you should have great
parents who let you pursue them and express your creativity”
– Randy Pausch

Do you ever think about your son’s dreams? Do you take the time to  talk to him about what he wants to do with his future?

The beauty of childhood is our ability to dream and believe in unlimited possibilities. We see ourselves changing the world and being integral in solving mysteries, finding cures, saving lives, writing bestsellers and overall conquering the world.  Unfortunately, some adults interfere with childhood dreams and burst those happy little dream bubbles. We don’t want to do that to our sons.

Our job as parents is to nurture, support and encourage our sons to dream BIG.  We are not to laugh at or dismiss our son’s dream. We want him to know and believe that there is nothing to stop him from being the man God created him to be. It requires us to constantly communicate with our son about his vision and create a supportive learning environment.

We want to be one of the people on the sidelines cheering our sons on, not those protesting and blocking them from living their dreams.

Talk to your son about his dreams and tell him that you are here to guide him, pick him up when he stumbles and lift him up when he gets discouraged.  Let him know that no matter how outrageous his dream is, you have his back.

How are you supporting your son’s dream?
