Strength and acheivment

There are lifelong lessons about strength and achievement we need to teach children. The child that's the strongest child in class is not necessarily going to be the best athlete on a team. And I once had a professional athlete who went on to great acclaim as a basketball player admit that he had never been successful at basketball until his senior year in high school when he had his big growth spurt. So one of the things that we need to remind ourselves is that children need to be fit and able, socially, intellectually, emotionally, in order for them to achieve certain things at different ages and stages. And until all those systems are go, and all those stars align, they actually can't be good at certain things at certain ages. So give them the time. Motivate them and give them the honesty so that they always have something to work toward as they improve and grow in their lives.
