Sometimes I wish I could prevent every failure my children will ever face.
No parent wants to see their child down, upset, limp, defeated.
In failure, even if we’d rather not go through it, are moments of learning.
So I will not prevent my children from failing.
The truth is I wouldn’t be able to anyways.
Instead I will remind myself whenever is needed
Preventing Failures is not equal to encouraging success.
Don’t be afraid that your child might fail at something they wish to do.
See the beauty in that they are willing to try, that they have the courage to show up and the fearlessness to just give it a chance.
Hugs at the end will work both to celebrate the accomplishment and/or the attempt and determination.
Peace & Be Well,
