Without courage it’s less likely that we, or our kids, will accomplish great things. Doing a courageous act implies taking risks.
Today’s kids are far more likely to take physical risks before emotional ones.
Emotional risks are the ones that will lead this generation to do great things.
Teaching our kids to stand alone; if necessary, for what’s true, good, right and wise will build character qualities in them that will always be in demand.
However, it’s equally important to teach our kids to exercise the courage it takes to admit when they’ve believed a lie—or have made bad, wrong or foolish decisions.
Courage to admit failure helps validate the courage of our convictions—so, let’s raise courageous kids.
