And that the pains they suffered and endured were by no means inferior to others.

It’s okay if things aren’t according to plan

In the mission to make sure that we do things all right for our children’s happiness, we sometimes fail to see what truly makes them excited and happy. When consumed by the process of making things right when what seemed as fool-proof design was messed up by unforeseen events, we somehow missed out on the pure joy and exuberance our kids show regardless of everything.

Raising Children of Character: Pushing Boundaries, Creating Possibilities

My son, Chace, is no Reggie White, Randy Moss, or Tom Brady. Nonetheless, he is endowed with tenacious spirit and courage to continually challenge his comfort zone. As parents, my husband and I, help him push boundaries and destroy barriers while he creates space for possibilities. It is not about attaining excellence and perfection; it is for developing maturity, stability and elegant sportsmanship. Above all, we want our son to be as happy and as fulfilled as he can be while he makes strong connections with the world he builds.
