As parents, we do everything in our power to make things perfect for our children. We try to live in the best school systems. We try to make sure they are well-rounded and have access to various opportunities. We also go so far as to impede on our personal sanity to provide them with the very best.
But sometimes, there is only so much we can do. Our children will need to learn to fail or make difficult decisions. Sure we can coddle them, but in the end we must remember that what doesn’t kill them makes them stronger.
As my daughter recently learned…..”sometimes, life is not fair.”
…………and that my friends can be a valuable piece of knowledge for her to know as she grows up. As much as we want to fix it, we should be cautious in how we do so.
