Determination

I keep reminding myself that Madeline's stubbornness and determination aren't qualities. While it is trying for us to deal with it now, in a lot of ways it will shape her and in turn help her in making decisions when she is older. So I strive to not correct her at every turn. To not readily jump in to "fix it" when things aren't working for her. To try to allow her some grace to figure out parts of her world on her own.
