Instilling the self-confidence kids will need to carry them
through all the failure they will experience because
they weren’t taught competence instead.
Found on Pinterest.
This quote is deeper than it looks at first glance. I would say my parents taught me competence, but I could have used a little affirmation too. If one or the other is out of balance, we do our children a disservice.

My dad always told us that if we were going to do something to make sure we did our best. I don’t know if we, as kids, were affirmed as much as we were told it was okay to fail as long as we had given our best.
Just as important 👍
