As we progress through the final examinations for 2018, it is important we reflect on the role being played, by us, in our children’s lives.
There is no doubt that all parents only want what is best for their children and want to assist them, in any way, to reach their potential. While doing this we should question ourselves if how we are helping our child is what is best for them, or for ourselves. What are the expectations we have for our children: are they realistic, or misaligned from what they can actually achieve? Unrealistic expectations place undue stress on an already stressful situation.
