So many people don't understand. So many see us as over anxious, power hungry, controlling parents. That judgement is even more painful coming from family and close friends. As we make our children's worlds smaller, more manageable, at times we have to cut out, sacrifice the life and activities we wish we were living...but if healing is the goal, no sacrifice is too great. As humans we all deserve the basic right to love and feel loved. helping our children become whole, helps them receive and be capable of that basic right.
