Most Par­ents will Ignore this Impor­tant Advice for their Chil­dren

A man, an avid Gar­den­er saw a small But­ter­fly lay­ing few eggs in one of the pots in his gar­den, since that day he looked at the egg with ever grow­ing curios­i­ty and eager­ness. The egg start­ed to move and shake a lit­tle, he was excit­ed to see a new life com­ing up right in front of his eyes.

He spent hours watch­ing the egg, now the egg start­ed to expand and devel­op cracks, a tiny head and anten­nae start­ed to come out ever so slow­ly. The man’s excite­ment knew no bounds, he got his mag­ni­fy­ing glass­es and sat to watch the life and body of a pupa com­ing out. He saw the strug­gle of the ten­der pupa and could­n’t resist his urge to “HELP”.

He went and got a ten­der for­ceps to help the egg break, a nip here, a nip there to help the strug­gling life and the pupa was out, the man was ecsta­t­ic!

The man wait­ed now each day for the pupa to grow and fly like a beau­ti­ful but­ter­fly, but alas that nev­er happened.The lar­vae pupa had an over­sized head and kept crawl­ing along in the pot for the full 4 weeks and died!

Depressed the man went to his botanist friend and asked the rea­son.

His friend told him the strug­gle to break out of the egg helps the lar­vae to send blood to its wings and the head push helps the head to remain small so that the ten­der wings can sup­port it through its 4 week life cycle.

In his eager­ness to help, the man destroyed a beau­ti­ful life!

Strug­gles help all of us, that’s why a bit of effort goes a long way to devel­op our strength to face life’s dif­fi­cul­ties!

As par­ents, we some­times go too far try­ing to help and pro­tect our kids from life’s harsh real­i­ties and dis­ap­point­ments. We don’t want our kids to strug­gle like we did.

Har­vard psy­chi­a­trist Dr. Dan Kind­lon says that over-pro­tect­ed chil­dren are more like­ly to strug­gle in rela­tion­ships and with chal­lenges.

We’re send­ing our kids the mes­sage that they’re not capa­ble of help­ing them­selves.

To quote clin­i­cal psy­chol­o­gist, Dr. Wendy ‘s Moral:

It is the job of par­ents to pre­pare Chil­dren for the Road and not pre­pare the Road for the  Chil­dren”
