When it comes to parenting, there’s a powerful lesson Turia Pitt and fiancé Michael Hoskin will be teaching their son.
There’s no doubt the couple have faced their fair share of challenges together, making them more than qualified to speak on the importance of being resilient.
“We want to protect our kids and for everything to be good and great for them, I get that, but the truth is you can’t stop everything bad from happening to your kid,” the athlete and motivational speaker told The Advertiser in July.
“I want to teach him resilience; that no matter what happens the has the ability to cope because challenges are part of life.
“They will get their heart broken, bullied and not get the job they wanted, but I think it is better to give them tools to cope when that stuff happens.”
