So I learned a fairly innocent truth about my infancy that threw my perceptions about my childhood into a very different light.

Like the PP said, the hard tests are precisely what make you grow up emotionally. I think as a parent what you should do is to be supportive so those "tests" are not traumatizing.

I think that the hard tests in life come one way or the other.

Honestly, I think the struggles and hard tests are the defining moments of life. Me and DH have talked a lot about how we want to teach our child to work hard and to look at hard work as been the true point of life. I think the more you are protected from struggles as a child, the harder it is when you get older. Parents spoil their kids because they don't like to see them cry--but it is a fact of life that you can't always have everything you want. The sooner they learn this lesson, the easier life will be in the long run. I think this is one of many "hard life lessons" that is is important to learn and get over early on.
