"As trite as it sounds, mistakes are better teachers than parents. Rather than preventing our kids from experiencing failure, we instead must show them how to interpret it."
That's from my friend Debra Ross's new book, Seasons and Reasons: A Parent's Guide to Cultivating Great Kids. The Kindle version is free today as I write, in one of these promotional offer deals.
I'm about 21 percent in. Yes, as many of you know, that's the sort of fact you have available when you read in Kindle format.
It's a charming book, easy to read, reflective about being an active parent.
A life without setbacks must be
a boring ride, short on glee.
