Fearless Parenting is about preparing a child for adulthood, not for a lifetime of childhood. And this is where so many parents make. Out of love, they make these mistakes of trying to remove every obstacle for their child, trying to do everything for the child. They talk to teachers. They talk to principals. They talk to judges. They talk to coaches. Instead of letting the child face their own problems, the adult faces the problems. So Fearless Parenting is about look, you are going out into the adult world and I am not going to be there. And you are going to have to deal with these adults. So how do you do it? As a fearless parent, you are always imparting your morals and values to your child. you are teaching them all the time about how to cope in the adult world. If you can afford it, you are taking them to travel. Even if you can´t afford it, you are showing them how to ride buses, how to catch cabs, how to handle public transportation. You are talking to them about the importance of showing up to work on time, about working hard, working smarter, staying later. These are things young adults do not understand about the real world. So Fearless Parenting focuses on one thing. Raising an adult.
