Using your money to not let your kids fail?
This might be just one more issue that a wealthy parent might have.
Most of us might have it?
You want to give. You want to provide. And that’s great.
But if you never allow your children to fail – I think – it can be a recipe for a later disaster.
Let them fail when the consequences are small and manageable!
So that when the consequences are great – they can understand the cause and effect.
This is my favorite part of Love and Logic.
Channeling your good fortune to help your children get a good education is laudable, but using it to make sure they do not fail is a path to future failure.
–Paul Sullivan, The Thin Green Line
