match their effort

I have read that when a baby bird is ready to hatch, if you break the egg for them, it will die. The bird must peck its own way out of the egg into the world. This process, this struggle, is vital. It teaches them right from the beginning that they have to be aggressive and active in life. These kiddos will always have me to help them learn and grow, but I am here simply to guide. It is the world around them that will teach them. So many of us mothers want to take the burden from our children, but in the end that will only hurt them more. My goal is to be here to encourage, and match their effort, but it is their work to do. #athomewithjulie #momof3#coffeeconfessions
