Are our expectations too high?

Posted on 10/22/2016 by Greg Yoder
We all want what’s best for our kids. Academically, we know they need to do well in school to get into college. If they don’t learn early how to apply themselves, how are they going to do it when it’s important? But are we expecting too much of our kids? There are some families who demand all As on their kids report cards. What if that’s impossible for our son or daughter? I was a student who didn’t fail algebra, but about the only thing I really understood was how to spell it. No matter how hard I tried, it just didn’t come to me. But I could write. It came easy for me, especially after spell check was invented. Bottom line: we need to keep our expectations in line with reality—then celebrate the successes.
Suggested Reading: Hebrews 10:24-25
