Dream-Smashers

When my sons were little, friends would wisely say, "Little kids, little problems. Big kids, big problems."

They were right.

Now my sons are big. Kevin is 19 and a sophomore at Rutgers, and Dave is about to turn 18 and is a senior in high school, applying to colleges.

They aspire to do great things. Kevin wants to be a film maker, and Dave wants to be a singer and actor.

My wife Joan and I are so proud of them. Yet at they same time, we are worried that they will be disappointed by what they will encounter in "the real world."

So how do we provide a healthy reality check without being dream-smashers?
