You can’t “Be anything you want to be”: Kids and Activities

In our culture today, kids have so many options for activities that it can be overwhelming!  How do you balance family life with sports, theater, groups, and community events especially when you have many children?  Exposure to different activities is important, because children have talents that should be discovered. Nevertheless, we are doing a great disservice to our kids when we tell them that they “can do anything they put their mind to” because that simply isn’t true.  We all have unique gifts given to us that we need to discover, and part of being a parent is to guide our children through this process and eliminate things on the way.
