Every parent wants their children to be extraordinary – to stand out in the crowd for their accomplishments and character. Everyone wants to raise uncommon kids.
I’m no different.
But raising uncommon kids takes uncommon effort. It’s not something that happens over night, but something that happens over a lifetime.
Common parents, like myself, need a roadmap to help us develop uncommon children. Thankfully there is one.
I don’t know about you, but motherhood isn’t exactly what I envisioned it to be. Growing up, I thought I had it all figured out. I was always good with kids, getting them to comply and do what I wanted them to do. As a teacher, I was able to motive my students and encourage them to great heights. I thought I had this parenting thing in the bag.
Boy was I wrong.
My son’s tears course down his cheeks and it’s my fault. My heart hurts. I gave into frustration and lost my temper. My raised voice wounded this precious child.
Before giving birth, I had this whole parenting thing figured out. I taught preschool for years. I knew how to motivate children to do right.
Or so I thought.
