Here is the best parenting advice told by Cecily Tyson:
“I once ran across a young child who did not know who Dr Martin Luther King was.
You know when we were fighting for rights we did not want them to go through what we had to go through and so we were trying to make it possible for them to use their energies and their talents to do other things to help humanity.
And because of that we gave them too much and left them nothing to fight for.
Without the struggle they just could not understand what it all meant.”
Sometimes parents want to blaze the path for their kids when the best thing for them to do is to let their kids chop their own wood to blaze their own trail.
There is meaning in struggling.
To struggle is part of the success formula.
