You Shouldn't Quit

When my son Jackson was almost ten, he was taking guitar lessons and I made him practice his guitar regularly. It was something that he did not quite willingly, but he did it.

At one point he came to me and said, “Daddy, I want to quit guitar.” He always said he wanted to quit. And I said, “No, Son, that’s the one thing I’m not letting you quit until you are at least sixteen. You’re going to keep playing guitar no matter what.”
