I have the day off today. I have the house to myself. I do have some errands to run, but in all, it should be a nice relaxing day to enjoy this 60° Florida winter weather. I hope that all of you have a great day and find your voice.
This is my little Leia in her hippie gear. She and Meredith teach me so much about life and how to keep going when I am tired and beaten. My wife and children have grounded me and helped me to recognize the truly important things in life.
I think that we all struggle against greed and envious thought processes everyday. As parents we want the best for our children. I think that’s great, until we start competing against each other and judging other parents for their choices. There is no “one size fits all” solution for parenting any more than any other human interaction.
So the next time you see that parent struggling to maintain their sanity and their child’s behavior, don’t judge. Someone may have looked at you that way earlier.
