Creating A New Definition Of “Success”

You are more than your achievements.

Not too long ago, my son came home disappointed about his performance on a standardized English test. Although he did very well, he had received perfect scores in previous years and felt that anything less was unacceptable. This striving for achievement, while impressive, was also misguided. In short, his thinking was that if he missed even one question, then he was a failure. As his mother, my goal is to help him to learn that his worth runs deeper than what he can prove through achievement. Check out my latest North Phoenix Mom’s Blog for tips on how I aim to achieve that goal.
