Since I always tell you the truth, I think you should know
extra effort at everything will be required.
Before you sigh and feel low, you must know
this will be a good thing.
When the pampered people give up and whine,
the tenacious, tough folks barely flinch.
They leave the sprinters behind as they run their extra mile.
Your job, Another Mother, is encouragement NOT enabling.
Stand back and watch them rise strong.
