My biggest fear is raising children who expect everything and want for nothing. When my then 16-year-old ask if he was going to be getting a car when he received his drivers license, even though i knew this meant a huge help for us not having to drive him around and giving him the responsibility of driving his brothers, that was not enough to justify the luxury of a car at the age of 16. That is when I realized that he could take over the delivering and running my of my outdoor food pantries that I started in 2020. It was a win-win and he has gotten so much out of helping feed those in need. You can find more on my Soup Kitchen and my outdoor pantries here:
