Many parents who worry about their child’s focus and work ethic fall in one of two camps:
(1) I’m worried my child is a perfectionist; he gets so upset when he doesn’t get something just right!
(2) I’m worried my child has no drive or ambition. She doesn’t even want to try! She’d rather take the easy route….every time!
