I won’t be disappointed

My son shared his concern that he wouldn’t make a good decision about something and I’d be disappointed in him.
 
I stopped him and told him I will never be disappointed in him because that’s like expecting him to never make mistakes or somehow make the decisions I’d make.
 
If he makes a decision that goes poorly, then it’s a teachable moment. An opportunity to give himself grace instead of disappointment.
