If we try to control and hold onto our children, we lose them. When we let them go, they have the option to return to us more fully
~Anne Wilson Schaef

Few of us have a Ph.D. in parenting. If we did we would probably be worse than we are now. How much energy we put into trying to mold and control our children, not for their sakes, but so they will reflect better on us.

We are unable to see them as separate and important beings who are here to share a time with us so that we can learn from each other. We think we need them to validate our lives and our choices in life. When we do that, we use them as objects, which is totally disrespectful of them and ourselves.

To love our children is to see them, respect them, share life with them. . . and always to let go.
