As parents, we all want what is best for our kids. . . And sometimes, with the best of intentions, we can try to control their sweet little lives in the spirit of wanting the whole world and more for them. Sometimes, we want to hand them everything on a silver platter because we just want them to be happy, fulfilled and healthy. And I think parents who also run businesses can maybe (just maybe) be even a bit more guilty of this.
There's so much pressure on kids today: getting great grades across the board, being in high-level sports and making varsity, dealing with bullying, the digital world, and all these different things that they're facing can turn us into well-intentioned micromanagers for our kids.
In today’s episode I want to present an idea that's going to flip the script and hopefully free you of this pressure that we put on ourselves - because controlling and dictating our children's path is not only not helping them, but it's actually robbing them of the lessons through failures and mistakes, that they need to shape them into who they're actually called to be.
