We recently had a fun opportunity to collaborate with @miir to help launch their kids’ water bottles, and shared a bit about our family, how we instill confidence in our boys, and how we practice sustainability on their community blog (link in profile if you’d like to read more☝️)! Here’s an excerpt:
Miir: Our mission is to empower people for a better future — how do you empower confidence in your boys?
We encourage our sons to be curious, explore, and problem solve. We are cautious, as parents of young children should be, and exercise judgment in what we allow them to do. However, whenever it's safe, we push them to do things on their own. When they struggle, we give them a hand and reassure them, but encourage them to keep on trying. For example, we hear some parents say that they can't go on this or that hike because they have young kids. Our boys have been "hiking" since they could walk, and can both hike several miles a day with minimal whining. They did great walking all over China, and last summer we even enjoyed hiking a stretch of the Narrows in Zion National Park together!
While our family loves adventures and vacations, we also look forward to and are thankful for the “every day” — the days at work, at school, and at home. We believe that confidence is built through practice and hard work, and emphasize dedication to everything they do — whether it's learning to read, practicing the violin, or learning how to ride a bike.
Parents- if you’re looking for an awesome stainless steel, insulated, leak proof water bottle for your kids, check out this bottle! We love ours and they go with us everywhere - to the beach, on hikes and to school!
