    When my daughter was little, I told her that the job of the Mommy and Daddy was to help her to grow up and take care of herself. When we do our job well, we obsolete the need for basic dependencies to be fulfilled by a parent, so a child can grow up and realize their own potential. Hopefully what we provide is substrate for making good decisions.


    Thanks, Carol, for that perspective. Absolutely agree that our job as parents is to help our kids to become independent. My big aha has been the emotional aspect of when that actually happens!

    Your point on giving kids the foundation to make good decisions is well taken. And what I find incredibly difficult is to see them make poor decisions and suffer the consequences! Parenting continues to be an opportunity for my own personal growth.
