Someone recently asked me, “Do you remember when your parents ruined your life?” Then last week, I saw this picture.
I found it interesting that both of these sayings came to me in the same week. As a mother, I try not to push my children in one direction or another. However, I do. I teach them many beliefs and expose them to many different cultures. In the end though, I am a true believer that children learn what they see and experience. My children see the world through my eyes because we are together-ALL-THE-TIME. I am a granola, earth-loving, veggie-eating, nonreligious, homeschooling mom.
So what is the world telling them that they should be? When will I or did I ruin their lives? I hope they find who they want to be before the world decides for them and I hope that they will be able turn what I ruin into something beautiful.
