Parenting with high expectations

Today was just another lesson in parentingimage. I picked up my daughter and knew something was wrong, the minute we got in the car she burst into tears. Those big full of hurt tears that lasted the whole car ride home, it scared me, had my mind spinning on what could of happened to her. “Mom I got an F, are you mad at me” .. It broke. my. heart. that over an F she felt like a failure, because of expectations I created.
As her parent my responsibility is to remind her she’s enough and her worth isn’t based on a stupid F. She teaches me so much about myself everyday.
