At the end of her first day in pre-K, Anna left the classroom on her own. When we realized she was missing, I went down the hall and found her talking to her former teacher. When I asked why she went by herself, Anna replied confidently, “Because I can. I’m four!” Her self-confidence was impressive.

But in the end, our little heroine finds a way. When we give children room to do things on their own, they will give us more than a few heart palpitations along the way.
