I spent 3 1/2 hours with my friend knitting. We sat at Bernice’s, a local bakery, and enjoyed tea, a snack and our knitting.  It was delicious to sit and talk and knit.  59 more words

The Battle with Self

Last week I spent a lot of time battling things I thought I had overcome time ago! I felt like I was not measuring up. I felt like everyone was in a better position,  better than me. 594 more words


Holding on and letting go

I’ve never thought of myself as a particularly clingy parent. I’ve happily let my kids go to play at other people’s homes and have sleepovers from a fairly young age (hey, I’ve even encouraged them – the peacefulness when we have a break from each other can be so lovely!) 459 more words

Making Progress

Helen K reblogged this on Home Base and commented:

Some blog posts require reblogging because the topic still applies. And that is to topic of knowing when to hold on, and when to let go. This time it's how best to support my daughter navigate a path between being oversensitive and standing up for herself at school. The urge to 'make it better' is strong but, provided it doesn't go too far, her teachers and us as parents are better placed in helping her help herself. It is a slow process, but there is progress nonetheless. We can see that she is developing greater awareness, including self confidence without being self absorbed, kindness without being a doormat (although, of course, there are lapses in all of these, and that's to be expected). Importantly, this won't continue for ever - there is a light at the end of the tunnel. And it's a tunnel she needs to travel through - we can be there, but we can't carry her through it. What's your biggest challenge as a parent?
