The Sky is Your Limit: A morning conversation with my sons
Here’s how the conversation went this morning while I was on my way to drop the boys off to school:
Josh: Daddy, I want to be a doctor or lawyer, or I will be a civics teacher.
* Josh wants to get a PhD in Government and Political Science. He also said that he wants to work for CNN and replace Anderson Cooper. Sorry, Anderson. You won’t have a job in a few years.lol
Terrence: It is hard to get a good career.
Me: Yes, it is hard; but, if you work hard and have the commitment, you can do it.
Me: your limit is the sky.
Josh: That’s not true, daddy. Astronauts have surpassed the sky. They have gone to the moon.
Me: Well, “the sky is your limit” is a metaphor. It simply means no one can stop your dream.
You can even be the next President of the United States.
Josh: Okay, daddy.
*Metaphors and figures of speech are dangerous communication techniques for the little minds. Be careful when you use them. Lol
