In my last five years as a parent, I've found that letting my kids experience failure is the very best parenting tool I have.
I empathize with the social pressures of raising generation Alpha, and find myself giving in to it from time to time. But just as I changed my behavior, so should young millennial moms for their mental health and for the sake of those around them (their spouses, teachers, even other moms). I found it's okay to be enthusiastic about my children's future, just not delusional.
