As unpleasant as they are, sometimes my kids need an intervention -- and it seems to jump start them back on track. I ordered my favorite breakfast. I couldn't eat it because of the stress of our meeting. But the result, somehow, is a kid that is now somewhat motivated to do something..... which I didn't have when we started.

Whether genetically or otherwise, I inherited or developed the "tackle hard things" motivation and do not understand people who shut down because they can't see a way through a situation. But my daughter doesn't have that. And sometimes she needs me to say and do certain things to get out of her slump.

I just wish that those meetings were not so emotionally stressful for me....
