My husband is such a good dad to our boys. One of my favorite things that he does as a dad is teach Matteo little phrases. One of Matteo’s recent favorites is “hard work pays off.”
Matteo was using a paint app on the iPhone. He was proud of what he created & gasped & said, “I did hard work, & it pays off!”
This phrase has been helpful in combatting his perfectionist tendencies along with “try your best, forget the rest.” Which he picked up from Paw Patrol.
It has been good to hear these phrases instead of things like, “I can’t do it perfect.”
