Mother To Son – Suck it Up and Move — 16 Comments

  1. I hate how early we have to start teaching this message. I sure wish it was still all sunshine and rainbows for my little one!

  2. I just had to tell my daughter this the other day when she didn’t want to go to school because people were being mean to her. This lesson is hard to learn, but a must!

  3. As parents it can be easy to try to shield and protect our children from hard times, decisions, and situations. Truly, as tempting as that is, it does not prepare them for the uncertainties and difficulties they will undoubtedly face in the world as an adult. I really like this poem.

  4. That’s a lesson I currently teach my boys. Being from a military background they know that life isn’t easy and you got to suck it up at times.

  5. This is a good lesson to learn. Sometimes you have to do things that you don’t really want to, but you do them anyways.

  6. That is a great quote. I am teaching my oldest just that, he unfortunately has been bullied it’s important to teach kids to be strong and be themselves.

  7. Working through something like this with my son right now and it is extremely hard not to jump and help fix it for him. Oh, parenting. Tough stuff.

  8. I have a “man cub” that I am trying really hard to get him to understand that it’s important that he learns to take responsibility for his actions. It’s hard but so important! Life is not always easy and I want him to learn that NOW and not down the way.

  9. It’s a very important to learn that life doesn’t always work the way we think it should. I’ve been very lucky that all of the children in my life have looked at this optimistically. We talk about failure is not really failure it is feedback. What did we learn from the situation? We have had so many creative discussions about this and I’m so proud of them!!!!

  10. These are lessons my children have had a difficult time learning. The youngest 2 (of 5) are learning it a little earlier than the older three and I credit that almost entirely to working with horses. There are so many life lessons that are learned through caring with and for horses and they are priceless.

  11. My son is learning that life is hard. His band teacher loves to tell the kids when they start to whine about band practice to “suck it up buttercup” . The kids find this really funny and it gets them back int he game.

  12. That is a very important lesson to teach our kids. I am working on teaching this to my boys.
