Dream Their Dreams
I’ve found that one of the hardest parts of being a mother is letting go of my personal hopes and dreams for my boys and letting them pursue their own hope and dreams. I’ve learned the hard way that the more I push them to follow my insights for them, the more resistant they become to both that path and to me. Of course I still keep some boundaries and rules, but when I’ve let go and let my boys pursue their own dreams, I’ve found that everyone is happier and relationships are stronger. The Mindful Word has some great insights into letting children find their own path.
