Self Reliance

As a parent and especially as a woman it can be very easy to over-step our boundaries. We want to love and nurture others but the line between caring and smothering can become unclear.

It is important to not rob someone of their right to self-reliance. They deserve the satisfaction of working through a problem and feeling proud of their accomplishment.

The most loving thing we can do is to stand back and offer support and encouragement for what we know they are capable of.
