How to raise or lower the bars we set for our children.
Some parents put unrealistic expectations on their children, who attempt to meet those expectations and when they miss struggle with feelings of failure. Other parents decide they do not want to struggle with disappointment. They have set the bar low to ensure success for their children. Unfortunately, the child feels no real sense of accomplishment, but instead feels like he or she is being patronized. With little expected, little is accomplished.
How can we avoid raising children who feel they can never quite measure up? What are the results of expecting too little from our children? Are comparisons among siblings ever productive? How can we set realistic expectations for our children? These are the questions we ll be asking and discussing in this study.
