Oh, SO what she said
Especially this part:
. . . all of the behaviors which will make her a FABULOUS ADULT are the ones that make her a TRYING CHILD.
Because, really, what do I want for my kids? I want them to have a clear sense of who they are and what they want. I don’t want them to succumb to peer pressure. I don’t want them to be afraid to stand their ground. Truly. But is it SO much to ask that FOR RIGHT NOW they bend to my will?
Don’t answer that.
Hello, when did she become L’s mother?
