Let them grow.

This one is inspired by an article in the Guardian newspaper by Jessica Lahey: Why we should let our children fail. It is an excerpt from her book, The Gift of Failure.
The work of raising a resourceful adult takes time, but it begins with a simple equation. We need to give our children autonomy, allow them to feel competent, and let them know we support them as they grow. This process begins the moment our babies fail to grasp a toy or fall as they toddle across the room and continues until they head out into their own lives.
Let them grow.
