The disappointment in your child’s face is so hard to face; yet, we look them eye to eye, start nursing their wound, and hope it doesn’t scar. What is “just life” to us is the world to them. A part of parenting is understands that our child/ren only sees the whole and not the sum of its parts. They live in the moment; we have to teach them that moments are collected, and how we spend them will accrue wealth or bankruptcy. We should inform them that disappointment is endless but it doesn’t have to be the end. Our control isn’t in our ability to prevent it but in our ability to recover; it’s okay to cry, let it out because if not, it’s going to eat them from the inside out. We are preparing them for a world that lacks perfection by encouraging them to sustain their purity!!!!
