Of What Are You Most Proud?

A parent should never tell her child that she’s proud of him, I once heard a psychologist advise. Instead, the parent should encourage her child to be proud of himself. Indeed. At any age, we should feel deep pleasure or satisfaction from our own own achievements and admirable qualities. And, we have many of both!

Congratulations, ladies, one and all!
