I was walking past a dad helping a child balance on a pole today and as the child nearly fell he help her keep her balance, a thought popped into my mind as i continued walking.

I wondered where the balance is between aiding the child to balance and letting them fall off and possibly hurt themselves. I think there does need to be times when we are not held up and kept up. Now to put some perspective on it. This kid was at least around 8, and although many of us struggle with balancing on a pole, I could not help think that if the dad was not there, the child would have made more of an effort to balance and probably or at least soon not need the father.[On a similar thought i like these new balance bikes for kids.. no training wheels just your feet then you have to balance.. i think it is a better way of learning, of training a child’s mind that you need to keep the bike up right.]

So the thought continues into life. Is it not time to find the right balance of help and doing it yourself. Maybe it is time to say thank you but I’ll be all right from now on.Where is the point where we need to do things by ourselves?

How do we know what we can handle? The answer of course is, we don’t know until we try. My suggestion is be who you want 2B, don’t let fear stop you from doing.
