Sometimes as a parent, you need to “let go,” and let your kids go!
We were at a carnival and my sweet-and-pensive nine-year-old daughter wanted to ride only two things. The carousel? No. The jumping house? No.
The mechanical bull. And the Zipline.
This is when you transform yourself into supportive cheerleader.
- You support their dreams.
- You cheer them on with zest.
Even if, on the inside, you are worried and cringing. Watch my daughter as she adventures down the Zipline. Go!
