Have you ever found yourself doing this harsh thing to your child?
It’s a good thing to ponder. What does it mean? I think … it means to let your child be who and what he was created to be and NOT who and what you want him to be.
What does it mean to unfold and not mold?
Unfolding your child means to watch and listen, not ignore and block out, or insist that ice hockey (for instance) is the only sport worth playing because that’s what YOU played. It means there is a unique individual here before you who has a chance to be who he was created to be if you will only get out of his way.
