The toughest part of parenting is allowing the children to make choices that you wouldn't. Not dangerous or destructive choices. But saying to our Director of Religious Ed., "No, I won't help you."

Asked to do a small task that would take 2 minutes, the answer came back no. The director smiled and walked away.

It was not my place to interfere or influence her decision. But I was crushed. Really how could this child be mine? And where have I gone wrong?

Give them roots and give them wings.

Deep breath.

Absolutely Jeff. We can only do our best. What they do with our best, is up to them.
