Truer Words

Noah is being placed in a special reading program to help him along and keep a closer "eye" on his eye. Tonight he said, but Mommy, what if I can't do it?

You can do it.

But what if I get it wrong?

Everyone gets things wrong lots of times. It's ok.

But what if I can't figure it out even the second, third, and fourth time?

You just keep trying until you do.

  27. Definitely great to keep encouraging him! :) It is so crazy to see the fear of failure at such an early age, but it makes sense. We just want to do well in all that we do.
