Kids: Teach Them…


Today I took 2/3 of the crew to a walking bridge I’d driven under a thousand times but had never been on. It got me thinking, as usual.

What is one of the best thing you can do for your kids? Teach them the traits that will serve them throughout their lives.

Teach them about the fun to be had in adventure, by doing new things, going new places, venturing into the unknown. They’ll be energized, and excited, and challenged. All good things.

Teach them to cope with struggle, with pain, with difficulty, and disappointment. All of these conditions are part of life, the human experience we all share. The sooner they learn the skills to get through the trials, the better off they’ll be.

Teach them to adapt. The theme comes back to the for again and again. The only constant is change. Learn to adapt as needed, adjust and keep moving forward, the better off we are. 

The big take-away? Learn these skills earlier in life, be happier. 

Who knew a weekend walk to a new place could be so GOOD.
