Our daughter's will be told "No" several times along their journey.
Our daughter's will experience failure and disappointment along their journey.
They will gain some friends and they will lose some along the way.
Nonetheless, they will learn and understand that it is not meant for everyone to travel along with them as go through the journey of life.
As parent's, we must be there to pick them up when things look bleak. We must be there when they feel like they can no longer continue their journey. We must motivate, encourage, support, pray for and pour into them. Most of all teach them to never give up and never give in. Tell them it may not look like things are working out for them now, but they should continue working towards their goals.
Tell them they should pace themselves. Do not expect immediate results or success. Let them know that everything takes time. Encourage them to have faith and believe that things will fall into place at the right time.
