Are You Treating Your Kids Like Your Career?

And, we see this all the time. Hey, listen
I’ve heard evidence of this phenomenon at the hairdresser, nail salon,
at high school softball games, or at the grocery store. 

Mothers
move in closer to each other and

start to talk to one other very
seriously and very competitively about their kids’ achievements,
successes, activities but certainly not about their disappointments,
feelings, or emotional concerns. Nope, those topics are reserved for the
night when those parents are alone with both the darkness of the night
and their concerns.

Now these are kids
they are talking about, not careers. I’ll tell you though that it sounds
a whole lot like they are talking about jobs and job advancement. And,
these kids who are their current careers, in my opinion, are at risk to
become highly anxious and stressed as they struggle not to let their
parents down. Don’t kid yourself parents — your kids are desperately
afraid of failing you.

Want to figure out if your child has become your career? Answer the following five questions:

1. Are your child’s test grades the highlight of your day if they are excellent grades?
2.
Do you quiz other parents about what their kids are up to so that you
can make sure that you have all bases covered with your own kid?
3. Do you sometimes forget that you have other activities in your life that don’t involve your children?
4. When you meet up with other mothers is the primary and perhaps exclusive topic your kids
5. Is your child showing signs of perfectionism and stress?
If
you have answered yes to more than one of these questions, perhaps it
is time to re-evaluate your life and figure out if you might just be
pushing your kids too hard.
