Are parents enablers?

Live life

I wasn’t encouraged, pushed or told to by my parents. I do do those things. I go to every show, every, sport event, every Parent Teacher meeting. I push, I check, I moan and I cajole. I do it all.

Dad dilemmas

Time is awastin’…..

Other than that, there’s not much but companionable silence, and the wish in me that we had more interesting stuff to talk about.

When your past affects your present.

I miss the lazy long Sundays around the table. I miss the free and easy phone conversation. I miss the engagement you can have with your children in a very calm and easy manner. Basically I miss family dinners.
