Since my friend is doing better, I will not!

One day, my son (8 years old) returned from swimming training in a gloomy mood. I began to ask questions and found out that the whole thing was in a friend. A friend achieved some outstanding results during training. The coach praised a friend. My son in that training was not even able to get close to the success of a friend. This was a real blow to his son.
As a result, the child made the following conclusion: I won’t go swimming anymore. It’s unpleasant to listen to the coach praising someone, and not you. A friend in everything is better than me, oh why so. How miserable I am, etc.

I confess that I reacted incorrectly at first. I got hooked on the topic of envy. I began to convince my son that “your friend is not better in everything,” that you will succeed too. The son listened to it all with a Continue reading

How to turn a teenager into a man

It was 1993. At that time I was renting a 2-room apartment in which we lived with my youngest son, Ilya, who was twelve years old. The eldest son studied at a music school and lived in another city, often coming for the weekend. Then I had good opportunities in the implementation of new knowledge on the education of the youngest son.

He studied poorly, but thanks to his good memory and quick wits, he managed to finish a quarter without twos. And taking into account the transitional age and its difficult nature, I decided to focus more on the formation of masculine qualities.

I realized that you can bring up without prohibitions and punishments, the main thing is to transfer the desired freedom to a teenager along with responsibility. For this, I set myself the task: to learn not to emotionally respond to any tricks of my son, that is, to maintain complete inner calm. Only six months later, I coped with this task. This was necessary to Continue reading

About the princess, a magic flower and a clue from the Cosmos

Once upon a time there was a princess. Real, fabulous. And as beautiful as they are written about in books. That is, blonde, with a wasp waist and large blue eyes. In the kingdom where she lived, everyone was just talking about her beauty. Only the princess was forever unhappy. Either the throne was set hard, then the chocolate is too bitter. And she grumbled around the clock.
Once she heard from a boy running after her carriage, unusual loud words. And there was such anger in them and some strange power that the princess realized if these words were used in the kingdom, then everyone would be scared of her and would love her even more. So she began to do. What’s wrong with her, she immediately shouts: “You are a freak, beastless cattle,” and the servants immediately part, and the priest asks if she will say anything special. It hurts too angry because. The princess realized that there was great power in evil words and began to use them left and right to strengthen her power …

But once this happened. The blonde princess went, grumbling and scolding everyone, as always, into her favorite garden. Here she could be alone and admire the swans floating in the pond. Passing the familiar road, she suddenly Continue reading
