That’s life right? We’re not always recognized for our hard work, determination and perseverance. Nonetheless, I let my boys know that they have to work harder, stand out brighter, and demonstrate
consistency. Because you know what? It’s not enough to be smart or
astute in one or multiple subjects…no, that’s not…
Ok, so not for nothing, but my guys rarely ever get in trouble. It really is very rare that my boys are punished/grounded. They’re pretty well behaved for the most part, and when they do screw up, we deal with
the situations in a more “diplomatic” way.
