How do you think mama bird feels pushing her little chick for the first time off the branch high on a treetop? How do you think the little chick feels. Pretty frightening for both wouldn’t you say!
Likewise, it’s normal for parents to be afraid when our children try new things as all we want to do is protect them. At time if we don’t encourage facing fears it could be detrimental. Pushing children into doing things that they might be afraid helps their development, confidence and independence. So next time you’re feeling like mama bird who might prefer not to have to push her little chick from that branch, just think what could happen if she didn’t.
Believe in Fairy Elle. She believes in you.
