The problem with kids and goals is that parents often get in
the way of them, admittedly. While I would much rather spend
money on sports than art lessons, I have decided that for a
7-year-old, the most important thing I could teach her is how
to set goals for herself, pursue her venture through failures
and success, and achieve the goals she set out for herself.
I used to complain she never showed any interest in anything
besides playing with her toys. But that wasn’t true. She loved
to draw. I just never took her hobby seriously. When I asked
her what kind of class she would like to enroll in after school,
she said art class. I chose not to listen.
