One thought on “Sumo deadlift

  1. KUDOS to you for letting the leash out. My boys are also 13 and 15, and it is hard to know what to let them do smteoimes. But you have to capitalize on the opportunities for them to do things on their own. Hope they make good decisions but hope that they make some bad ones (not life-threatening of course!) and learn from them. The more practiced they are, the less likely they’ll be like all of those other kids whose parents protected them from everything you know, the ones that go off to college and don’t know how to handle themselves. Those kids are set up to fail. You are setting your son up to succeed most of the time, and learn quickly from his failures.He should be proud of himself for handling it well. And I think this will certainly build a trusting relationship between the two of you, at a fragile time in his life.(P.S. Remember the woman in NYC who, a few years ago, let her son take the subway home? He was 10 or 11, I think, and she really took a lot of heat for that decision. I think it’s brilliant, provided the child has been given prior opportunities increasing in complexity to show he can do it.)
