I deal with objection a lot in the form of my feisty nine year old who ‘objects’ to at least half of what I say on a daily basis.
I’m learning to see that this isn’t [always] a bad thing. As with many of my daughter’s seemingly toilsome traits.
“She’s a firecracker” we tell people. I always make sure to place a positive spin on the challenges she offers us as her parents though.
She’s optimistic not unrealistic. Imaginative not a day dreamer. Spontaneous rather than impulsive or undisciplined. Her non stop chatter; that’s a great communicator right there. And instead of staying she’s stubborn and disorganised, I’ll tell you she’s a determined wee things who’d rather focus on people than things.
I love all of her, regardless. Even in my frustration.
And some day, I don’t doubt for a second, all of her personality traits will develop into an amazing young lady, a leader. Quite possibly a lawyer so all those objections can be focused on someone other than her mama!
