How is parenting never done? And where are the bigger problems and the larger
expenses in grown kids?Great keeping connected though separated
A wise friend told me that one of the blessings of raising her children was
this: that after the children were grown that they became her and her husband's
best friends. Now that all but one of our children have left the
nest that blessing is coming to fruition in our lives! Even though miles and
miles separate our residences, and actual face to face visits are
semi-occasional, the bonds continue to grow stronger!(Of course this
is augmented when our grandchildren, by the time they learn to speak, learn that
Skype is a verb, and that they exercise it often!)
The content of the article seemed to be very good, but I must say I was a bit
put off by the title. There are many ways in which I think parents should be
much less involved with their adult children's lives, marriages, and families. A
lot of this involvement does nothing more than enable the childish behavior many
grown children engage in.
Sounds nice, but also a little exhausting, esp. for some who might live far
away. An annual family reunion?
What a great story and example of how to stick together. I love it.This is what life is all about. Keep up the great work!
