Time Will Tell @StoryADayMay #MothersAndDaughters — 9 Comments

  1. Children can be so cruel, and they won’t realize it until they are parents themselves, if at all.

    One of the good things about homeschooling was the absence of this kind of nonsense, the hewing to the peer group, as if a random bunch of unfinished kids were better than family.

    When I hear of kids who won’t walk with their parents at the mall because they don’t want to be embarrassed by their parents, I remember how I can’t walk with mine.

    Yes, kids have to become independent. Yes, some parents seem to fail to realize this – and put every possible obstacle in the way. But I don’t like assuming it’s okay for our society. And it leaves the kids adrift.

    • I’ve heard it said that the two most important gifts you can give your children are: roots and wings. Mixing metaphors, but not untrue. I’ve never had a kid embarassed to walk with me. No, I tell a lie: I’ve never had a kid who didn’t walk with me because she was embarrassed. She was probably afraid I’d say, “Walk with me even if it embarrasses you. It builds character.”
