As the days and years go by, we watch our children grow into the men and women they will soon become.
During that growth process, it is sometimes hard to find peace in their actions. No matter the situation, it is important to remember that you and your child are a collective — and those bumps in the road, or those closed doors that shut you out from real conversations, are only temporary. Your child should realize that the doors of love and support are always open, even if that allows them to take it for granted. Ease your thoughts with the knowledge that all the positive influences you have embedded in them will bloom when you least expect it.
We go to church and read our Bibles to nurture our faith, but we might live in faithless anguish every time our child stays out late with friends or doesn’t answer their phone when we call. Life will bring both triumph and disappointment into your children’s lives, but the time and work you have invested in their development will calm the waters that flow into a critical thinking process and nourishes positive outcomes.
Even when everyone says, “They are grown now,” we must hold on to our children. Being “grown” does not always mean that their spirits are prepared for the realities of an unforgiving adult world. Challenge their ideas, so they are always engaged in the mental exercises that can build a successful life. Never give up on that warm hug or quiet walk that allows you to enter their world and learn what they value.
Communication with your child is essential. The topic may not always be what you want it to be, but just starting a conversation will open his or her door of love. You will experience bountiful peace in the knowledge that your child is all right.
