NEW "I believe the happiest kids are the ones empowered to make their own decisions" 'Do Your Scales! Just how much should we push our children?' by Adrian Moore Link in bio for the full article!!
"Before I even had my son, Zane, he was already going to be a black belt in BJJ and a bass player. That’s would be on top of his piano skills and his gymnastics skills.

What if he wants to be a golfer who loves Dan Brown novels? These are the questions I am debating with myself as my son starts to grow to an age where he will be able to start these kinds of activities (OK, maybe not the reading of non-fiction books just yet). I’ve distilled my thoughts into some points which I thought I’d share with ya’ll in this article."
