How are your children handling the world?

“all my life I have never heard a mother call out to her child as he or she goes off to school, “Take a lot of risks today, darling.” She is more likely to convey to her child, “Be careful, darling.” This “Be careful” carries with it a double message: “The world is really dangerous out there” … and … “you won’t be able to handle it.” What Mom is really saying, of course, is, “If something happens to you, I won’t be able to handle it.” You see, she is only passing on her lack of trust in her ability to handle what comes her way.” ― Susan Jeffers, Feel The Fear And Do It Anyway: How to Turn Your Fear and Indecision into Confidence and Action

As a parent and grandparent, I have come to learn the importance of how I model myself to my children and grandchildren. The more capable I am in handling my life, the more capable they are in handling their life. Susan Jeffers' book can help build tools to more comfort and trust and thus by osmosis bless your children and grandchildren. People find the book life changing. Imagine what a one-day workshop can do.
