this one…

This is my middle child. My second son.

He is a cool kid. Tender-hearted. Super smart. Wicked sense of humor. Gifted athlete.

And disciplined. Like there’s no tomorrow. He is the hardest working kid I know. At everything. Schoolwork, sports, you name it.

He requires no poking or prodding. No reminding. He is self-motivated and driven beyond belief. And oh yeah, he’s twelve.

Here he is outside. In the dark. It’s 23 degrees. Bitter. And he is practicing basketball. With a ball that needs air. Even though the season doesn’t start till February.

He doesn’t see me taking this video. He just keeps at it. That’s why he’s so good at everything he does.

Discipline.

    My 13 y/o is very much like your son..they will go far in life…self-motivation is a wonderful thing…while my younger son is a dreamer….he will live a long stress free life…just don’t know where he’ll end up

  3. Such discipline is hardly found anymore. You should give yourself a pat on the pat, or beter yet, let your son give you a big hug. You should be proud.
