At a recent workshop – a parent asked me –
“Why is my child so scared? Why doesn’t she just plunge into new challenges? Why does she try to avoid all difficult situations?”
My answer –
“What do you do when you face something that you find challenging?
No – don’t tell me about your rise in your organisation and all that you have achieved there.
Think back to the trips you plan during Diwali to avoid meeting your neighbours at the Diwali get-togethers.
Aren’t you escaping the challenge of forging new relationships?
Do you think your child doesn’t know or notice?
Be a good role model. Show your child that we need to stay and fight problems and overcome challenges. We cannot and should not run away.
