To push or not to push-
I think I probably should admit right off that as a parent I have tended to go the route of not pushing my kids
I recall telling my children more than once- If you are really stressing out about something- ask yourself- am I just afraid- do I want to do whatever it is- do I have to do it- and how do you think you might feel later if you choose not to do something
I figure- there is so much we have to do and so much we have no choice in - that fretting about all of it just becomes too much for kids and adults!
So there is a time to push and a time for me to try and see the greater picture
I mean ya gotta push em out of the bed sometimes- to clean- etc etc
Pushing too much can cause insecurity and fear- sometimes knowing you don't have to do something can push you right past the fear-
