Stop telling your kids they can achieve and be whatever they want to be.
That’s simply not true and it sets them up for failure.
- Not every kid will be a great singer. Some people flat out can’t sing
- Not every boy will be a great athlete. Some people don’t have an athletic gene in them
- Not every girl will be a great ballerina
- Not every kid will grow up to be the president of the United States…there can only be one at one time
What every child needs is to discover why they’ve been created. What their purpose for living is. Help each child discover their God-given purpose. Let your child know that God created them with a combination of gifts, talents, and a temperament that makes them absolutely unique in all of human history. And God placed them in your family and in this particular time because our world needs them to be everything God created them to be.
Help your child discover their God given purpose.
This leads to genuine happiness, a sense of purpose, and a sense of call for their lives.
I know we mean well when we tell our kids they can be anything they want to be. But that’s both not true, and it is not helpful.
Parents, help your child discover why God placed them on planet earth and help your children soar.
