When your daughter makes a mistake, and doesn’t respond the way you think she should, and you feel frustrated and upset and annoyed and ready to give her a piece of your mind, STOP.
What if you were certain that, despite this mistake, she would be successful anyway?
What if you knew, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that your daughter would learn and grow and get better and stronger because of this experience?
What if you accepted this “bad” moment as that, just a moment. One that would not completely derail her success, but simply become part of the journey.
Would you still feel frustrated? Would you still be upset? Would you still “need” to give her a piece of your mind?
Or would you respond differently?
