Hot Cement

When the ground is super hot and your kids is bare foot it can be quite a trial for them. 

Nothing cooks like hot cement.

Now a kid will generally yell and scream while dancing up and down, all in a vain attempt to avoid being burnt.

As a parent you have two choices.

  1. Pick your kid up and save their tiny feet.
  2. Encourage your kid to move quickly to a shaded piece of ground.

Both options achieve the same immediate goal, removing their feet from the hot cement.

However they both have lasting long term consequences. 

  1. Your kid will learn that you’ll be there to save them from pain and suffering.
  2. Your kid will learn to problem solve and self preserve.

Both long term consequences are equally valuable.

It’s up to you to choose which one you do.
