Yes, I 200% agree with you! Without that drive or hunger, there's complacency. I think every parent wants to see their child happy, but that doesn't mean handing everything to them. It's nice to have a safety net but ultimately, I want my kids to be goal-oriented people with strong work ethics. Then they can achieve something through their own effort (with help from the safety net I provide) and be proud of themselves.
I just don't want them to turn into some privileged kids who ignore the immense power and value of having a safety net.
