If you’ve been reading these posts for the last week, you know that my intention was to write two posts. The first, about help, I did write. The second, I still haven’t written.

Given the way life works, life is not predictable. We are adults, our children are not. We know the things that caused us pain - and we want to help our own children avoid that pain, and avoid bearing those scars.

Your insight is is wonderful. I wish that i had so much foresight and put so much thought into my own childrearing. God, or whatever higher power you might believe in, chose wisely when gifting you with your children.
