First Day of School Encouragement

The first day of school is a great example of how parents can ease their children out of the nest to fly on their own.  Despite preparation and practice runs, once my son was inside the school gate, he was on his own to find his class.  It took empathy, encouragement, and a little push to get him going, but he finally got to where he needed.

Pushing our children in minor matters is a great analogy for parents to push ourselves and grow.  When was the last time you took on something new?  When was the last time you did something that scared you?  When you stretch, just like you encourage your child to do, you can experience great benefits mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and financially.  Embrace the opportunity to grow and tell your child about your experience.  Your child will be glad to know he is not alone when it comes to facing fears.

Please comment and let us know the last time you felt like you were pushing yourself?  How did you grow as a person and as a parent because of it?  What did you gain from expanding your comfort zone?
