If we as parents want to build children into successful adults, we must allow them to be held responsible for their actions - from an early age. It's not necessarily a reflection or an indictment on us as parents if our children need correction by other adults... we all did... nothing has changed since we were kids. Kids are kids... they aren't perfect. So how about we all relax and work together as adult leaders to grow our next generation up into strong people who are ready to take on the world.
Parents... What is your reason for having your children in sports or music or dance or anything really? Is it to feed your ego or is it truly for them and their development?
Let your kids play, let life happen, and let them learn through their activities that life and people aren't perfect and in fact life sometimes isn't even fair! Let your kids be kids and allow them to get the most out of their activities in their own. The world will be glad you did!
If we want success for our sons and daughters we have to intentionally raise them into that success.
