We serve our children better by praying that the hardships they do endure make them stronger, wiser, and better equipped to share their unique gifts with the world.
Just as the universe treats all of God’s children with loving detachment, so must we guide and support our children while recognizing that “rescuing” them from difficulties can thwart the maturation process and prevent them from learning vital life lessons.
Too many parents make life hard for their children by trying, too zealously, to make it easy for them.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Indeed, we may inadvertently be creating an endless loop of dependence and entitlement that retards their psychological and spiritual growth.
Instead, let us encourage our children to venture outside their comfort zone and embrace all the richness that life has to offer.
Come to the edge.”
“We can’t. We are afraid.”
“Come to the edge.”
“We can’t. We will fall.”
“Come to the edge.”
And they came.
And he pushed them.
And they flew.
