Parenthood Lessons from Jason Ivler

As a young dad, I got valuable lessons from the recent incident involving Ivler and his mom. There are allegations that Ivler's mom hid him in their house to escape from being caught by police authority. Ivler is the primary suspect for the murder of a top-ranking government official in the Philippines.

There is no question that parents have undying and limitless love for their kids, but "love" is not just about giving them the all best in the world, but giving them your best self. It's not about taking side on them, but letting them understand which side to take. Sometimes the hardest part of being a parent is to realize when is "too much" too much. It is our important role to give our kids the best, but it is also our role to set boundaries.
