Just a couple thoughts I would like to share from you from one of my favorite authors Ellen Miller. I am trying not to be that mom…
“Successing Our Kids to Failure or Failing Our Kids to Success?”
We fail our children when we don’t allow them to fail.
We have failed and are failing our children by getting overly involved in their lives, which deprives them of vital experience in navigating life when things get tough.
Kids are not allowed to be average and have never been told that they are anything other than excellent at everything.
How does this affect kids later on? They glide on with a sense of entitlement that is embarrassing.
“Moms, they’re going to be closer to perfect after experiencing a little bit of failure and humility.”
