Raising adults

“You are not raising children; you are raising adults. In the time you blink twice, they’ll be twice your size, and well outside your ability to protect from speeding automobiles and tractor-trailers, from harsh words and absent-minded passing friendships, from the tiny disappointments of a missed play date or a lost toy…

You are raising adults, you are raising tiny, quickly-growing adults, and you must never, ever forget that. Therefore, it behooves you, then, if you love them (and you do) to give them the tools they need to live not when they’re with you, but when they are away from you — tools that will serve them not for the next 5 or 10 years, but will serve them for a lifetime.”

Raison d’etre

"Raw," she said. "I want something primal. I want something bare and naked. I want you to give me this life raw, unbidden, unhidden, free, fair, and true. Can you do that? Can you do that for me?"

One may only try.
