Giving Josh Credit
Sometimes we still struggle with giving our kids the credit the deserve and thinking of them as the capable people they are.
Papa is cutting down a dead tree in the yard. The chain of the chainsaw keeps coming off and he is really frustrated about it. I suggested yesterday he let Josh (9y) look at it, but Papa was determined to do it himself.
This morning Papa's latest fix still didn't work. I suggested again he let Josh check it out, and this time he did. Not 5 minutes later Papa comes inside and says, "I'm a jerk. He fixed it. I need to give him more credit."
