that is true. It is also correct what Paul said about the difficulties in our lives. But there is a particular time for each of these "difficulties". Sometimes they do make us stringer. But there are things that we are not able to handle. And if such an ordeal will happen to us when we are not ready, that may ruin your life instead of making you stringer. That is twice true if we are speaking about kids. The childhood is the time for growth and development, of learning. the exams and the life ordeals - they must come later, when the person will be ready for them.
