How do you know that all the decisions that you’re making are the correct ones? Are the ones that are going to properly set them up for their future? Are the ones to help form them to be loving, caring, supportive, educated, hard working individuals? Are going to guide them, and have them take a second thought when facing a problem?
How do we know we haven’t broken their souls, minds, hearts, spirits, creativeness, and individuality; when we ask them to please do better, listen, behave? Where is our inner guidance to support us; when doubt enters our mind: “Are we making the correct decisions for them and not us?”
Is showing them love, sharing, providing, setting goals, rules ENOUGH?
When does a person realize/know that they are doing a well enough role to not sacrifice the child’s imagination and life lessons?
