If your kids appear to be out of control, if you feel you are failing in the role of Mommy or Daddy; if you find yourself counting the days until your kids go off to college, it should be enlightening to realize that you aren’t alone!
Remember when your child was a newborn? The wonder and awe of actually creating a new life was overwhelming. Nothing could compare with the love and bonding that develops between a parent and child.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could bottle that time in your life and pull it out whenever you needed those memories? Unfortunately, we can’t do that.
