Want to raise a well balanced kid who will be able to deal with the ebb and flow of fortune and misfortune? Teach them this. Make sure you have your arm around them and they know they are loved as you explain it to them.
And don’t worry, they will still know they are the center of YOUR universe, no matter how hard you try to persuade them otherwise.
