Kids need to learn it early on because saying, I can’t or it’s too hard won’t serve you well in adult life. Reply Liz Mays on July 11, 2016 at 10:48 pm It sounds like your son is a hard worker! I think giving my kids hope so they keep striving to do their best is important. Reply Elizabeth O. on July 11, 2016 at 11:00 pm Hope is one of the most beautiful words and it means a lot to so many people. I completely agree with you on this post. It’s us who never gets tired of hoping for our kids and that’s what drives them to do more and to do better. We must never lose it.

Reply victoria on July 12, 2016 at 1:47 am Your son was so brave and I’m so glad that he pursuing his goal. Reply Robin Rue on July 12, 2016 at 10:47 am I love this! Teaching kids that they can work towards any goal is a great quality to put in their minds. Even though something seems hard, it just means you have to work more to get it. Reply Kathy on July 12, 2016 at 12:05 pm I think this is so great. I think all kids should be able to have fun like this. My oldest was in gymnastics for a while, but then she decided to stop. I’m hoping I can get them in to some Olympic type stuff. I know they’re going to love it. Reply Ashleigh Walls on July 12, 2016 at 4:54 pm Both of my kids go through 3 different therapies for delays. I have always made sure that they knew when they started that they can do so much when they keep trying. Reply Julie Syl Kalungi on July 12, 2016 at 5:59 pm I believe that FAITH Is the best way to teach our children. To BELIEVE that the can whatever the odds or current circumstances. Giving them hope is Great too! Teaching them FAITH is the Key to Opening Doors to an Olympian life!

Reply Melissa Bernardo on July 13, 2016 at 12:43 pm Hope is such a wonderful word. Great post. I enjoyed reading it! Reply Anosa on July 16, 2016 at 5:27 pm No kids yet but you’re so right the hope we give our kids can help them achieve the extraordinary in the future.

If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today.” Thanks for sharing. Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
