But I’m not you

Teenagers, a people who are lacking the capability to understand the simplest consequences, can at the same time provide wisdom beyond many adult minds.

Like Sam, in of our conversations yesterday, answered me: “But, mom, I’m not you.”

Those are the moments one must not only remember but also reflect and revise your own shortcomings. I guess that is all you can do.

    Great post! Sometimes as a parent, you have to stop and remember that.

    Your children they’re a part of you. But they aren’t you.

    Thanks for sharing!

      So true, but (apparently) so easy (for me) to forget.
