Guide Your Child to Resist Worldwide Comparison and Inferiority

When your girl discovers a new passion, like playing the piano, she’s likely to turn to the internet for inspiration… but yikes! Her search results in dozens of child prodigies and suddenly she feels inadequate and wants to quit. Nothing spoils your hopes and dreams like an internet search, am I right? 

We all fall victim to comparison, but online comparison is especially dangerous. Why? Because the internet’s benchmark for success is being the world’s very best. If we allow our girls to compare themselves to internet superstars, how will they ever allow themselves to explore the gifts and talents God has given them? 

Remind your girl that being the best in the world is not the goal—but being her very best self is!
