I have no idea. For one, I'm not the kind of person who really worries about developing any wisdom, but rather I just kind of keep trying to move forward every day. Secondly, my older kid has some special needs, so we don't really have the same experience that other parents have. When he makes progress, we often ask each other whether that's what normal is supposed to look like for a twelve year old, so I'm not sure I have much to offer others in the way of advice. Anyway, maybe the sage wisdom stuff comes after your kids grow up and leave (or move into the basement).
