I want to thank those who commented on this post about helping Tonka overcome the fear of failure.
Based on your feedback (faster and cheaper than therapy!), I decided to just back off.
Last week, Paco came to me and said, “can I go down the big slide?”
“Sure,” I said.
Then, Tonka, said, “I want to also…”
I was in shock.
I hadn’t said a word all summer.
She loved it.
