It’s not always easy watching our kids grow up. We cherish them and nurture them when they are small. Fixing their booboo’s and chasing the monsters out of the closet. From soccer games, to ballet, and track you know you were there, always cheering them on from the side. As they slowly become young men and women.There is a part of us, each that wants to hold on to the child that our children were.

The truth is most of us unless we have a degree in early childhood development or psychology are learning on the go. It is a big dash of common sense, and listening to your parents because by now you know they did get it right.

Soon she will be going out on her own to follow her dreams and I am happy for her. I know that as parent I have done my job, and shown her how to be a good person, how to stand up for herself, and respect herself. It isn’t rocket science and we all make mistakes, sometimes it even means letting them fall.
So whether your just starting out intending to prove to the world that you’re a better parent then your parents were or if you’re on the verge of letting go. It is a gift, that goes by so fast, cherish it!
Let them fly and let them go, they will come back and remember little by little the many little things you taught them if they don’t already know. You've already done the hard part now it’s time to sit back and live your own life and let them live theirs.
