Fumbling Towards Ecstasy

I read a great post yesterday that really made me think. The post was called, “I Want My Kids to Fail” and was about how we handicap our children by making their lives too easy and not allowing them to appreciate success more deeply. This is especially true when success comes easily, without the challenge of obstacles.

After reading the post, I thought a lot about it. I realized the gravity of what the author was saying and I have to agree. Though I think its probably one of the hardest things for a parent to want for their child-failure-I believe that understanding what failure means is the only way that a person can truly comprehend the value of success.

I thought about this in other areas of life as well. I am a mother who wants my children to be happy in life. But not only happy – I want them to be well-rounded, empathetic, loving, and appreciative so that their happiness is not so…
