There are times when it is really clear that are kids are making a passage. Today my oldest son graduates from high school--wow. Whatever is going on in your life, I'm sure your child is in the midst of a big transition, too.
No stage ends all at once, kids slip from being newborns to babies to toddlers bit by bit day by day. Becoming adults is no different, it's a gradual process.
Let's take time today to open to the wonder of raising these beings, making this journey, surviving, learning, growing, and loving. It's a gift. Whether you're at the beginning, middle, or near the end, let's enjoy the magic of this moment, this day, with each of our children.
My life and work are guided by the these core understandings: that all beings (including me!) are capable of transformation and joy, that healthy parenting matters profoundly, and that simple practices can support each of us.
