Spontaneous thought from lunch meeting last week.


Something this Dad doesn’t say very often:

Son, I’m proud of you.

Long ago, a Montessori curriculum expert suggested that when raising a child, be careful not to have them grow up with an approval addiction.

Let the child discover how valuable and special they are. On their own.

Facilitate their own sense of pride that is from their internal voice, not the voice of approving adults.

Guide them in a different way.
