Have you ever been told how to do something by someone who obviously did not know how to do what they were correcting you about?
It happens to parents ALL THE TIME!! It happens to DJs, Drivers, mechanics, politicians, musicians and pretty much every professional in the world.
The NFL has “air chair quarterbacks”. The Church has “Monday morning preachers”. Parents have “expert children” who never had any of their own. The pediatrician has “family physician via Dr. Google”. Politicians have “media pundits”. Everyone wants and hopes and pretends their opinion matters. Most opinions are like socks.
However, there is a proper place for mentors, coaches, advisers and trainers. The true experts who have paid the price either in the form of advanced education committed with both time and money or by the pain of real life experiences. You can learn in the class room or the trenches but one way or another you will learn.
