I will allow my children to struggle and even fail. This is perhaps one of the hardest challenges of parenting.

Everyone understands, and most agree, with this principle in theory. But when our children encounter honest-to-goodness struggles, we are hard-wired to jump in and protect them.

However, struggles are the way a child learns to be an adult eventually, this is how they grow.
