Wanting my kids to fail…

As I keep this going, there are some articles I would like to share with others that don’t belong anywhere else.  So will post as a blog post.  I want my kids to fail is a great article about not over protecting your kids, and somehow making everything perfect for them.  Why is that article apropos right now, is my kids are involved with travel sport tryouts.  They may or may not make the teams they want.  But they need to work for it, and find if their work paid off, or that they need to work harder next time.   If every time they made everything and every team they went out for, they would never learn to work harder.  Success is not a given, its earned.

So failure is an option, and for your kids something they need to learn.
