    1. Dear Rochelle,

      You’re right. My mother used to say that you make the child but you don’t make the mind. Even if you don’t approve of their choices or support their decisions, you have to let them live their lives.



      1. Exactly! And our parents had to do the same with us. It isn’t until you become a parent that you really begin to appreciate your parents and all that they had to go through to raise us as best as they could.
