Many parents may agree that parenting is no easy feat. And they may also agree that there is no greater joy than seeing one’s child thrive. This particular dad filmed his son’s personal development, three years apart, after imparting some insightful words about progress and patience to him. The video is such a heartwarming watch, we can only imagine how proud this father must feel of his son’s growth.
Posted on Instagram on July 3, the clip was shared from writer Jason Wilson’s official account. “I updated this viral video of me helping my beloved son overcome his lack of confidence by inserting a clip of where he is today (end of video). May we all be encouraged to change the way we view progress and have patience with ourselves through the process!” reads the text posted alongside the recording.
The film opens to a video Wilson recorded three years back. The father-son duo are practising boxing when Wilson notices tears in his boy’s eyes. He asks, “What you crying for?”. To which the child responds, “I don’t feel confident in myself”.
When probed about why he feels this way, the young boy says, “Because I have to do it over and over again”. Wilson accounts for his son’s sentiments and shares some lasting words of wisdom. He says, “Over and over doesn’t mean you’re doing it wrong. It means you have to practice”. Their conversation goes on for a few more seconds and makes for a very compelling watch.
