let go as they grow.

LET GO AS THEY GROW. A great mom is like a set of training wheels. She gives her children support as they grow and learn how to balance their own lives. One day the training wheels will be taken off. Letting go is not easy. It is also not easy watching them wobble and skin their knees a few times before they are off and on their own. Just remember that they are not alone. When you are not with them they have God to watch over them. Teaching your children to lean less and less on you will teach them to lean more on God. Loosen your grip on your children a bit each day. Letting them go will help them grow. There are two lasting bequests that we can give our children: One is roots and the other is wings. Hodding Carter Jr.
