What Your Kids Need To Know
April 20, 2008 9:25pm CST
Carnegie Mellon professor Randy Pausch, diagnosed terminal pancreatic cancer, knows that he won't be around to give his children advice in person, so he wrote it all down in "The Last Lecture,'' an inspirational new book that outlines Dr. Pausch's ideas for achieving one's childhood dreams. You can read more about it here: http://download.srv.cs.cmu.edu/~pausch/. If you were diagnosed with a terminal illness, what wisdom would you want to leave with your kids? What is the best advice your parents gave you?

I saw a special on him last week I think it was, wow is he ever an inspiration. As far as what advise I would leave my children would be to follow their dreams and to be happy. Always remember we can do anything we want to if we work hard enough for it and always have it in our minds eye. Life is too short to fight or be unhappy, happiness is a choice, live life as your choice to be happy.

I don't have any kid yet. In fact, I not even married yet. LoL. But if I am in such situation, I would leave my kids the best advice, base on my experience so far. So that he could learn and experience himself. Sometimes, advice is just not enough, they need to learn on their own. By the way, thanks for sharing a good site.
