Parents can go from “good to great”

Paradox of success: the Stockdale Paradox- Jim Collins
January 08th, 2009

If you want to suceed, you need to cultivate your ability to do these two HARD things at the same time:

1) Stay firm in your belief that you will prevail in the end;
2) Confront the brutal facts around you.

“This is a very important lesson. You must never confuse faith that you will prevail in the end — which you can never afford to lose — with the discipline to confront the most brutal facts of your current reality, whatever they might be.”

When advocating for your child never give up on your core values and your faith in your ability to prevail.
