We all have been sons and daughters and as we got parents we understood things we weren’t able to comprehend before: for example, how difficult it is to be a parent!

One of the most frustrating things for me is to try to teach something to my kid without knowing for sure if he got it or not. When I talk about being determined, for example, I tell him “if you want to reach a goal, you have to be committed and believe in yourself”, but it’s not always that easy to have a feedback on that from him.

My mum always told me “Be faithful, have patience and most of all keep repeating things to him”; Honestly speaking, I haven’t been sure about it for years… until yesterday, when my son told me something that made me understand how he really got the concept of being determined.

My mum was right and she kept repeating that concept to me over and over. Now she can be sure that her daughter got it.
