Lessons from children – All things come with time
There are a lot of lessons to be learned as a parent, but one of the greatest lessons I have learned from my stepson is that all things come with time. As parents we rush to help our children learn new things and new skills. We get frustrated when we don’t think they are potty-training fast enough, they won’t sit still long enough to hear a chapter from a book, they won’t capitalize their sentences or basic math seems like calculus to their developing brains. We worry that we aren’t doing a good enough job and that lacking these basic skills is going to ruin them forever. Phew. Take a breath!
