Writing a forward-looking email to your child can be an emotional and meaningful way to leave a legacy and share your thoughts and wishes for their future.
Here are some tips for writing an effective email to your child:
Share your experiences and teachings:
Think about the things you have learned throughout your life and the teachings you want to share with your child. Make a list of the important values and lessons you want to pass on to him.
Write about your wishes and goals for him:
What do you expect from him in the future? What goals and wishes do you have for him? Write them in your email and explain why they are important to you.
Share special memories:
Talk about the special moments you have shared together and the memories you have of him when he was little.
Show your love and support:
Make sure your child knows that you will always be there for them, no matter what happens in the future. Writing an email of this type is a great opportunity to show your love and support for him.
Set a deadline:
Set a specific date on which you want your child to open the email, it can be their birthday, graduation, or any other important moment for them and for you.
Store it in a safe place:
Make sure you save the email in a safe place, where it cannot be lost.
It is important to remember that writing a future email to your child is a way to transmit your values and lessons and to show your love and support, it is not to control their life or impose your point of view on them. Think of it as a way to leave her a guide and a precious memory of you.
