This afternoon Michael and I wombled off to get some frozen peas and on the way mulled over various schooling options we’re thinking about. This lead onto our bigger worry, are we doing the right things? As parents of course we want to influence Mindy, we want to help her be kind and enthusiastic and most of all happy, however…. We know that at her age we are a powerful force in her life and that she wants to make us happy.
We are scared that when told her that sometimes boys can be girls that she heard that she should be.
We are scared that our support is really pressure.
We are scared that if we question her she’ll feel unsupported and that it will hurt her.
We are scared that we will do this wrong.
(When I showed Mindy this post she told me to stop worrying so much and then went back to the game on a phone. That puts our concerns in their place then….)
