The two only sound the same. The first is futile, even though we try our best, and if you try too hard, you can actually do more harm than good.
Children are like magnets to our fears. To their core they need to rub up against danger, and any parent who has succeeded in protecting their children from such will testify how the results are not pretty.
Parents are charged with the responsibility of protecting their progeny, but they have a greater responsibility to ensure such children are self protected. You must ensure your children eat well, go to the best school, marry smart, keep off drugs, and stay close. These and many more have to be front, but what has to be center is the tools to turn the bad into the great.
The disappointments of life are a daily occurrence, therefore the opportunities to inspire your children are equally frequent.
