Re: Things to say and not to say to kids

I'm all for reality checks, but I have to be very careful that my personal resentment from hard knocks doesn't drag my kids' enthusiasm down. I always tell them "the most noble and amazing thing you can do is to take care of your family's needs and feed them, it might not be the most glamorous job, but you get points for sticking it out." The whole social media thing, grass is greener on the other side is also harmful regarding skewing reality. I 110% support my kids' dreams, but at times, it is to their benefit to see life in a more accurate perspective.
