Parental Reflections

One of the lessons today was talking about how God loves us so he lets us make mistakes so we can grow from them. It made me realize that many times I do that with my own children. But that I should allow them to do it more often.

I get so used to helping them avoid catastrophes that I help them avoid lots of things that will bring them pain or suffering. There are some things they need to learn on their own and I need to let them. I need to practice more love and logic parenting and let them create their own lives. They are little... but need to learn about their freedom to choose and that there choices have real consequences in life.
