Kids Who Do Things the Hard Way

A kid who does things the hard way can grow into an adult who is capable of doing hard things. I discovered this truth some time ago.  I was a kid who did things the hard way.  This is one of those truths that helps to reinforce the work of Lenore Skenazy.  Of course, she’s been labeled the worst mom in America because some people need to sell clicks and that title is a lot more interesting than “mom who trusted her kid to do something that was statistically safe.” Safe things can be hard and doing hard things can be good.  It teaches us to be comfortable outside of our comfort zone and when you’re the sort of person who’s comfortable in difficult situations you’ll be capable of doig hard things.
