I’ve committed to 15 minutes of blogging on Fridays, but I’m stuck today.
How timely that my 15-minute-of-blogging-on-Fridays-friend also blogged about fear today.
Living in a small community (under 100 families) has its challenges.
What comes up a lot of times for me is the parenting styles.
Somehow, I think, somehow, we have it all here.
And, when my child interacts with another child, who, by chance, was raised with a different parenting style than his own, well, things can get sticky.
At least for me.
As the parent.
Who thinks the way she raises her children is the right way.
But, at what point do I draw the line and say to my child,
“Yes, this is the right way.
And, you need to learn it.
And pass it on.”
I’ll write next week, once I figure out a way to describe the two situations without divulging who the players are.
I’ll either see if I can get over my fear of revealing my feelings about my friends’ parenting styles, or learn to just let go.
