via Daily Prompt: Micro
Do not micro-manage your relationships as this is a form of control. Trust the flow, the outcome, the purpose of this person entering your life. Do not have expectations….relate without attachment. Enjoy the relationship for what it is, without driving it to be what you want it to be.
This is especially true for children. Let them be who they are, not who you want them to be. Let them find their purpose, let them discover who they are, let them struggle…yes struggle (I know that is hard for the helicopter parent) because that struggle brings them skills to navigate through life. Building life skills is critical to their development. Let them fail, let them struggle, let them hurt…it will make them better people.
