Very happy to have my oldest get through his middle school graduation. He is such a nice kid and so smart. Adults frequently tell me how kind and caring he is, and they are correct.
I know as parents we all want to hear nice things about our kids, and certainly the world is full of insincere praise. However, when you constantly hear nice things with the same words used again and again “kind” “considerate” “caring”; and you combine it with the top science grade and top social studies grade and generally overall good grades; throw in some outside leadership activities, and I’m pretty lucky.
