One of the most important things you can teach your children is that progress is something they need to have through their entire life. Without progress, they would be needing your help through their whole life and they would not be able to make any decisions on their own. Of course, to make progress, they need to have some kind of an ambition a goal they want to reach. You don’t need to worry about that, every child has some kind of a dream life they want someday to achieve. No matter what their dream is you must not stop them or ruin that for them because then you will be making problems for you and them.
Whatever their dream and goals in life are, you as their mother must respect them and encourage them. Even if their goals are maybe impossible to achieve, you have to believe in your children and support them through their entire life. They will see and appreciate the effort and the support that you are giving them. That’s how dreams become reality if there is someone that is supporting you throughout the whole journey. The best part of it is that if you support them enough, you will get the best reward of your entire life. If they try hard enough they will succeed and their success is your reward. You should be proud of yourself and them when you see them succeed because without your help, encouragement, and belief they would have most likely failed.
We have been saying how you should always be there for your children though their whole progression process. However, you must not take on and fight their problems for them. That can be bad because then you will create a false image of the world for them and later when they grow older, you won’t be able to help them with problems anymore they will be feeling lost and scared. You must let them conquer some of the life problems on their own. That is the only way they can get experience that they need later in their life. Of course, giving them advice is always a good thing because then they will learn to listen to other people and take their advice and opinions in the count. Challenging them is the only way you will be able to raise your children to be ready for their adult life.
