Courage

 

“Courage is not simply on e of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at its testing point.” –C.S. Lewis

It takes courage to love a child even with he or she does things that inconvenience, stress or hurt us.

It takes courage to believe our love as parents, teachers and mentors matters to an aloof teenager and to continue in that love for who they are and who they will be someday.

It takes courage to hold back a harsh word when an angry response to a disobedient child seems the easiest or even justified.

It takes courage to listen to your child talk about being hurt, angry or sad.

It takes courage to show our love through our actions—not just our words.

It takes courage to hold your ground and it takes courage to make a change.

It takes courage to tell your child you believe in them even when there is a chance they might fail.

It takes courage to believe in your child’s wildest dreams.

It takes courage to let a child go when they’re ready and courage to hold them tight when they need it.

It takes courage to be a parent.

So, whether in love, patience, encouragement or trust—let us be courageous.
