I LOVE what this article has to say and felt it was worth sharing.
The TLDR version of 8 is this (but really, read the article! It's worth it.)
1. They Let The Kids Struggle
2. They Let Their Kids Experience Rejection
3. They Don’t Condone a Victim Mentality
4. They Do More Than Tell Them to ‘Buck Up’ When Struggles Occur
5. They Help Their Kids Learn How to Label Their Feelings and Emotions.
6. They Give Their Kids The Tools to Self Soothe
7. They Admit Their Mistakes. And Then They Fix Them
8. They Always Connect Their Kid’s Self Worth to Their Level of Effort
