Note From Mom

Let me tell you, it is incredibly hard letting your kid take the reins on a project. It’s crazy hard. You want to see them succeed and protect them from failure.

Then I realized, who am I to know what will succeed and what won’t? Furthermore, how can he learn if I never let him make mistakes?

Instead, I guided him when he asked. Gave my opinion when solicited and let him create from the heart and imagination.

**I have edited his instructions for grammar and clarification but all ideas and steps are his.

In the end this little craft turned out adorable. More importantly, he is proud of his crafty 3D fireworks decoration. It is easy for young kids to make, too, which is always great when your kids range from 4 to 9.

If you are like me, and want to protect your kid from the world, take a breath. Let him make mistakes now while he is under the umbrella of your protection. Our mistakes make us better and it is no different for kids. All we can do is make sure they have a safe place to land.
