It may be that the feeling of needing another kind of child to love visits all of us as parents from time to time, when things feel particularly challenging. But if we go deeper we may find that, after all, we can know and love well the children who are ours to love. Parenting is clearly a life’s work, and it is for life that we undertake it. As we all know down to our bones, there is no question about doing a perfect job, or always “getting it right.” It seems more a quest than a question of anything. What is important is that we be authentic, and that we honor our children and ourselves as best we can, and that our intention be to, at the very least, do no harm.
What are your parenting traps?
