Letting Them Grow Up
Watching our children grow up is often a source of great joy, but it can also be a source of an equal amount of worry. Worrying about them solicits a question that we must respond to: How can we help them gain independence, yet still be safe? As they take steps towards independence, there are steps that we, as parents, can take to help them explore the world around them. While they are learning boundaries, we are learning to trust them. There will be bumps in the road, but each bump can help both you and your child as you journey towards their adulthood together.
