My daughter Alyssa has been such a joy and source of pride for Rick and I. It is not without hard work from her, and us! We kick her behind, and stay on top of her weaknesses, and watch her succeed in everything she does.
The stress part, is when she strays from her path, to do whatever it is that she wants to do, not good for her.
Rick and I suck up the grief, and bring her back on the path. Parenting never ends.
However when do you, as a parent, allow them the right to fail? I mean, if she wants to throw away her job, her money, her truck, her family all to act like she's a college student on summer break, why should we stand in her way of her happiness? Isn't it her right to throw it all away?
Now that she is 21, we are getting tired of chasing some of her bad decisions. She has to figure out what she wants in her life. We all know, the years between 21 and 31 FLY by. And 30 - 40 was a wink for me. I hope she figures it out soon. Teaching degree, IT career, thrown down the drain.
She has to be honest with herself, even when no one is looking. Does she want to teach, or not? Writing? Reviewing? Does she want to make her own money, or not? Married? Kids? Soccer mom?
All Rick and I wanted to do was give her the opportunity to save money, work, go to school. But that's what WE want. What does she want?
Or do you bring her back... ??
