At times, after a challenging day at school, we tell my son that life is not fair. He hates remote learning and doesn’t understand why his teachers have yet to master the technology. He even takes it personally. Which, of course, he shouldn’t. But I have digressed a bit. Just a bit.
Another kernel of wisdom we try to pass onto him. Hard steps in life are to be expected. They need to be taken. We make sure that he understands that the harder the step, the more important it is to take it. We try to convince that something that is hard, is not to be taken lightly. Plus, you feel a great sense of accomplishment when you take those hards steps. Empowement. Not a bad thing to pursue.
