This is an insightful talk that makes me think about a lot of things as a parent. It is important to be mindful about mental health in pursuit of success and maybe even more important to first think hard about what “success” means in the first place.
We all define “success” differently, how do you define it? It’s a simple question with a surprisingly complicated answer. Unfortunately, I find that most adults haven’t really thought this one through and they just follow the herd. It’s an important ongoing conversation to have with your children and help them discover their own answer.
