Children and young people are always growing and changing. Parents, however, sometimes need to take the effort to grow with them. #parenting
@ljwrites IMO part of it is that the parent(s) think of the child as some sort of artefact that they build, form, and with luck, release into Life, as their little work of art. They probably bring in a lot of dreams, plans, wishes and preconceptions about what a good family and nice happy kids are into their parenting. But when your little sculpture grabs the hammer and the chisel themselves, it's hard to put down one's vision for their little chef-d'oeuvre, and share or yield the authorship.
