When I was younger I used to get complimented for being "brave". Mostly for silly things like solo travel and moving abroad. I was always completely caught off guard as nothing I was doing was brave. Dumb, mostly, because I didn't know any better. But never brave.
I hope the same for my own kids -- that they're dumb enough to do brave things.
