The Powerful Word of the Month this month is self reliance! What new things have your children learned to do this summer? What new things have they tried? Are they able to do anything that surprised you? It can be difficult to let go or step aside– and certainly it can be challenging to watch your child fail, fumble, struggle, and make mistakes. Still, failures are often the path to success and trying is part of the journey to self reliance. What new things can your children try this month? Go for it!
