One Of The Best Pieces Of Advice ....

I've read about parenting can be summed up in one sentence:ย ย

How many of us are guilty of trying to produce mini usโ€™s??ย ย 

How many of us find ourselves being so incredibly confused over what our kids say?ย  What they do.ย  Who they hang out with.ย  What they want to spend their time doing.ย ย 

Our boys could spend literally weeks at a time glued to their computers.ย ย 

If we didnโ€™t call them up from the basement or down from their bedrooms to eat โ€ฆ. I donโ€™t think they would bother.ย 
I donโ€™t get it โ€ฆ. Period.ย ย 

But isnโ€™t that the point?ย ย 

Iโ€™m not supposed to get it.ย ย 

I'm just here to simply manage, protect and defend.ย ย 

Not to understand the mindset of a kid.ย ย 

Iโ€™m going to leave that to the kids and the psychologists.

My job is to keep them alive and embrace the messiness of parenthood.

Do you agree with this?
