I was almost 40 when I learned to ski. I use the word “learned” loosely because I still struggle to slow down, turn, or stop when on the slopes. I know one speed, and that is “GET OUT OF MY WAY BECAUSE I DON’T KNOW HOW TO SLOW DOWN!!”
It makes skiing interesting and a bit terrifying.
But, in parenting, speed is not the goal. We are in it for the long haul. It is a marathon, not a sprint, where steadiness will keep us on track.
The small things? They matter in parenting. Small steps build the foundation for the big goal of launching well-prepared young adults into the world.
Slow and steady wins the race. Listen in as we unpack what that means.
