Getting accustomed to hardships

We are now near Arcachon on the West Coast of France. Watching my kids taking sailing classes, something utterly foreign to me, I realised how many life skills they are learning: flexibility, team-work and most important of all coping with difficulties. In a recent conversation I had with friends about the prevention of depression, we all agreed that among other things getting our kids accustomed to hardships might be a key factor. Of course no one wishes them a David Copperfield-like life but by letting them get used to effort little by little may best prepare them for the future.

  1. C’est bien joli ce que tu as dit là ! Curieusement je parlais de ce sujet avec Hélène et je pensais que c’était bien utile pour les enfants d’avoir un petit peu de hardship pour aimer les moments plus faciles.
