Example for my Kids

Portrait of happy kids lying over mature man and woman at the beach

My son is 7 and my daughter is 3. Right now, they are soaking up values from us as parents about how to live and how to achieve significance.

Becoming minimalist has modeled for my children that personal belongings are not the key to happiness, that security is found in their character, and that the pursuit of happiness runs a different road than the pursuit of possessions. These are valuable life lessons they will never learn at school or in the media.

    You are lucky you started this journey while your children are young. When I look back at what a terrible example we have been at times for out kids when it comes to materialism it makes me cringe.
