This is entirely unintended. Owning a small business, as any small business owner will tell you, is a hard road. To be frank, I don't know if I want the little chicks to follow in my exact footsteps. But this, along with the littler chick's desire to be a doctor/engineer/architect/police officer/space explorer/etc, shows me that they have picked up a few things without my direct action. They have decided that they can be more than they might see in media or in their local community. They have seen that they can be leaders, community members, and that they can choose the hard road-that their limitations are not so narrow as it might seem at first glance.
A parent can influence their chick in countless small ways throughout their lives, simply by the way they live and act-whether it is their response to their chick, to something bad that happens, to other people, or decisions made over the course of time. This is something that makes me pause and examine my choices. It should make all of us, as parents and adults who have innumerable chances to influence the chicks around us, stop and pause, and consider the impact our simple and often thoughtless actions and choices may have on the next generation.
