Pressure, and stress sucks. There is no other way to define it. When the going gets tough, most look for a hiding place. The true champions, in all walks of life, are “thank you may I have another”. Sounds pretty blatant and direct, but if you wipe away all of the soft, you don’t have to do this on your own, or don’t worry, things will get better”, the true reality is, the only way you learn from this is to do it yourself, and experience it first-hand, up close and personal.
Bulldozer and helicopter parents are prone to the protection of their kids from feeling pain, and discomfort. Any successful parent who has gone through tough times, failure, and despair, only to be looking back at it with appreciation should be hoping for the same thing for their cINhildren.
Read that sentence again, and ask yourself if you would want your children to go through these tough times if it would guarantee them being stronger on the other end, and able to live an independent, and fruitful, happy life!? The answer is more than likely, yes, you would.
Revel in your heartaches. What doesn’t kill them, will only make them stronger attitude by parents towards their children’s experience, if you are a betting person, lock that in Vegas on 100/1 odds, and you will win every time.
