#51: What is a Parent’s Job?

Today’s prompt is:

Feel free to listen in and share your own thoughts πŸ‘‡πŸ½.

Okay, I realize we’re taking on a loaded question today, for sure πŸ˜….

With two caveats:

#1: Is your answer actually within your circle of control?

Often as parents we assume our job is to ensure our kids turn out a certain way…

And while we can control the tools we equip them with, the values we share, and how often we choose to connect with our children, we can’t control who they turn out to be, what they do with the principles we teach them, or how they feel about us when push comes to shove.

#2: Our answers are just that – our thoughts, specific to us and our situation. They don’t negate yours, and we’d love to hear them!

    1. I will go into my room and bawl the day my kids decide hugs are no longer a thing. It’s the only reason I can put up with all the rest of the things that parenting entails. Lol. Sort of kidding… Sort of serious? 🀣
