She prepared her children to be disciplined and taught them how work ethics really works.
In talking to SF Gate, Stephen said the following. “Sports is a big part of our family, but not priority No. 1. Plenty of times I was disciplined for not taking care of things in the classroom or around the house, and the punishment was that I couldn’t practice or play.”
There’s a small incident about teaching discipline to Stephen. Like one night, he was supposed to do the dishes, but he skipped. Next day was the first game of Stephen in high school, and he was not allowed by his mother to play the game.
“If you hit a roadblock, don’t be discouraged. It provides a sense of who you are. That life throws you challenges, and you need to figure it out.” Sonya used to say these words to her children.
