As a parent, there is no shaping for what will be
For what will be isn't yet a reality
As a parent, there is no knowing what twists and turns will appear
For there is only the present that you can steer
As a parent, there is no telling how you should become
For only you can gather to determine the sum
As a parent, there is a fine line between right and wrong
For whichever you choose, you will grow strong
As a parent, there is no forcing what, to me, is known
For throughout your journey, you will be shown
As a parent, there is only trying my best to pass you the values
For they will keep you grounded as you discover what's true for you.
As a parent, I've been reviewing the different ways of parenting to find a way I can best support my daughter. I used to think that parents were supposed to know for their child and have all the answers, but I've realized how untrue that is. A parent is not here to shape their children into what they want, know everything or ensure that their children know everything they do. A parent is here to share what they know, be patient as their buds grow and try their best to support their child in the ways they can. Overall, it is love, the universal nutrient, that will keep us growing together and united.
