Stretch Quote – Parenting (@DrTempleGrandin)

stretch parenting quote

I think sometimes parents and teachers fail to STRETCH kids. My mother had a very good sense of how to STRETCH me just slightly outside my comfort zone.

As I think about this week’s STRETCH quote, I’m thankful for my parents.  Both my Mom and Dad have STRETCHED me to become a better person.  My Stretch nickname may have come from friends when I was going through my growth spurt late in high school, but I think the real stretching happened as a result of my parents encouragement, discipline, and accountability.

Thank you, Mom and Dad!

How did your parents STRETCH you outside your comfort zone?  What are you doing to STRETCH your own children?
