Let our kids be kids. I can cross my heart and say I have not met a bad kid yet.
We all went through the acne phase, our friends always had the better looks, clothes, boyfriend/girlfriend, invited to cool parties etc. But by taking just one step at a time, a few tears, a few swear words under the breathe and we came through it all. So will our kids, just be there for them.
Love, Validation, Connection, Education and a stable family life is the best gift we can give our kids.
