  1. One of the more difficult parenting aspects is to let our children march to their own drummer. Teaching and modeling to those still growing can be as difficult as the growing.

  2. Patty, love your thought, “Teaching and modeling to those still growing can be as difficult as the growing”.

  3. First day of school, today. It’s raining. The suggestion to grab a coat or umbrella goes unheeded. Someone will have a very wet 15 minutes at the bus stop… Lesson learned? Maybe.

    This mom must remember to ask about school and classes rather than the bus ride and getting wet.

  4. Wisdom comes from experience. Experience comes from making mistakes. This is a tough challenge face – letting children make them.
