Quote: Dad, we don’t want you to be President

Title: Decision Points
Author: George W. Bush
Page: 68

From the very beginning they [Bush's two daughters] had asked me not to run [for President]—sometimes joking, sometimes serious, often at the top of their lungs.
One of their favorite lines was, “Dad, you’re going to lose. You’re not as cool as you think you are.”
Other ties they asked, “Why do you want to ruin our lives?”

Seeing ourselves from our kid’s perspective is very difficult but their perspective is not always correct.
They are as self motivated as we are and usually it is harder to see things from our perspective.
