I once found my daughter at midnight sitting in the middle of her bedroom floor in tears. She was working on a project and refused to go to bed until it was complete, even though it wasn’t due for several days. She cried, sharing a list of things she had to do that week, including numerous rehearsals for her dance company’s upcoming performance and various school-related assignments that had, ultimately, sent her to the floor.
